trafficking_facts_07Be Active In Your Community

Learn what is going on in your own neighborhood. Recognize the signs of activity that seem out of the ordinary. Lobby for local and state anti-trafficking legislation. Advocate for local law enforcement training about recognizing and assisting trafficked persons. Organize or participate in a community task force against trafficking. Invite a speaker to your local community group, place of work, place of worship or civic organization to talk about the issue. Include trafficking awareness programs in your local schools. Place an article in your professional publication or newsletter or write a letter to the editor of your local paper.

Talk To Your Children

Agree on guidelines concerning Internet usage. Warn them about exciting job offers. Traffickers lure teens with promises of opportunities like modeling, graduate programs and nannying overseas. Stress the need to be wary of strangers. Traffickers hang out around malls, theme parks, schools, movie theatres, sports clubs, community centers and other places where groups of children and young people can be found. Tell them to beware of the Romeo approach. If a man promises a wonderful job with lots of money and lovely clothing, think again. Encourage them not to travel alone. They can see the world with a friend and they should stay together.

Show Awareness

Innocents at Risk strives to bring you products that do the maximum amount of good. That’s why 100% of our proceeds go to fight child trafficking and to raise awareness about this illicit industry. With each item purchased, shoppers generate funds that provide training materials for flight attendants, so that these people on the front line can call the hotline number and prevent child trafficking. We have a wide array of items to show your support, and hope to bring even more items to you soon.
