Going Beyond Good Intentions Regarding Trafficking

HOW TO MAKE A DIFFERENCE/From Presbyterians Today

Three key practices

1. Learn. We know more about human trafficking now than we did 10 years ago. Explore the real outcomes of efforts to help trafficked persons and consult the latest information.

2. Don’t go it alone. Develop and coordinate your efforts to assist trafficked persons with experienced social service, legal and government entities.

3.Keep trafficked persons in the decision-making seat. Explain the options available and do not coerce them into help they don’t want. Do not allow your desire to protect trafficked persons to override their ability to make choices about their own lives and situations.
