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.

Spread the Word About Freedom Week

Freedom Week is an incredible opportunity for the community to learn about human trafficking, be equipped, and respond.
We get to come together and be a voice to the voiceless and the hands and feet that serve them.
However, it’s a big job getting the word out in our communities and we need you help to tell people and encourage them to participate.
So how can you do that? Here are several ways:

Help give out flyers and posters
You can download the flyers from the website and print them. We will also have professional flyers and posters available after Jan. 16 at the Fresno First Baptist Church office, 1400 Saginaw Ave., Fresno from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., Mon.-Fri. Contact us if you would like flyers taken to your church or if you live closer to the Dinuba area.
-Join others in hanging flyers in the two mile area around your home and at the places you frequent (groceries stores, Starbucks, etc.). Together, we’ll bring awareness to our communities.
-Help us to hang posters at schools, church campuses, and public places (with permission, of course)
-Take flyers to give out to those you know or drop off at locations in your community (with permission)
-Have flyers available at your church or other group meetings.
