The first step to taking action is to be informed. We recommend starting with our “Background” pages for general information. In addition, explore preliminary resources specific to your field on our Resources for Stakeholders page. For additional information, search our Global Database.

Learning doesn’t have to happen alone; there are numerous anti-trafficking groups where people meet to share ideas and organize initiatives to spread awareness and take action in their communities. Check to see if there is an already established group near you.

If you are a student, we encourage you to choose an issue on human trafficking and modern-day slavery for a term paper or thesis to become knowledgeable of the issue firsthand. In addition, check to see if your institution has a group working to combat trafficking. If not, consider starting one!
