Education for Educators
Though human trafficking is largely hidden, victims are in plain sight. This includes those in schools within our community. Children may be victims of sex trafficking, through gangs or other traffickers. Heartbreakingly, some victims are trafficked by their own families. Children may also be victims of labor trafficking in agricultural labor or other forms of labor. Trafficked children may be kept from going to school, but others may continue as students. It is important for educators to not only be aware of child trafficking, but to learn the red flags that may indicate victimization and how to respond.
