Therefore, this speaks to a need for much stronger action at all levels to stop this heinous crime. Parents, school faculty members, and workers across various industries can also benefit from the following:

- Warning signs that someone is being trafficked
- Warning signs that someone is trafficking others
- Knowledge of how to report suspected human trafficking
Anyone who wishes to report what they believe to be human trafficking can contact the National Human Trafficking Hotline via phone at 1 (888) 373-7888 or by text at 233733.
