Action of The Day #4: Be Prepared To Be A Lifeline

Read through Signs Of Human Trafficking
Take the time to familiarize yourself with the signs of possible human trafficking so that you can be alert to red flags that might indicate a human trafficking situation.
If you work in health or social services or law enforcement, read and download indicators of human trafficking specific to your field, and other job related resources, provided by U.S. Health and Human Services.
If you are in education, assessment tools and resources are available through the U.S. Dept. of education and other sources here.

Action of the Day #3: Be Educated

Take the time to think: What questions do you have about human trafficking? What do you recognize that you don’t know? What is some key information that would help you be more equipped to respond to the reality of human trafficking in your community? These are excellent starting points.
Check out the information and resource links on this website. Central Valley Justice Coalition has a wealth of information on human trafficking and local information.
Look at our book list on our Go Forward Action+Resource Booklet and consider a book to read. Subscribe to blogs and news feeds such as CNN Freedom Project, Not For Sale, and Polaris Project and locally with the CVJC website.
Get connected with local organizations, or larger ones, to get more information.
Need help or suggestions? Email CVJC or call 752-1865.
Being educated is crucial to “smart activism” and effectively engaging our community in the effort to bring freedom where there is injustice.

Action Of The Day #1

There are MANY ways to get involved locally. We will be sharing action items from our Go Forward Resource+action Booklet each day.

Mentor a human trafficking survivor.
After someone is rescued, one of the key needs is a support system and someone to walk with them as they start their new life with new hope! We have many organizations that are working to have be part of that support system, but as we all know, friendship is absolutely necessary and healthy, mentoring relationships are vital. This is a GREAT NEED.
Contact Faith.Hope.Love at info@fhl-ministries.com if you are interested in being a mentor.
