Never get in to troubles like this we must fight against human trafficking

Top 10 solutions to human trafficking

Fundraising. Holding a fundraiser and donating the money raised to one of the countless organizations that help fight human trafficking not only gives money to the cause, but also raises awareness of the problem. Most of the organizations involved in the fight against trafficking are non-profit organizations that rely on donations. Holding fundraisers helps support these non-profit organizations.
Volunteer. Volunteering the time and effort of an anti-trafficking Organization is a great way to contribute to the fight against human trafficking. In addition to helping the organization itself, the more volunteers there are,the wider the reach. For example, Unseen is a non-profit organization that helps victims of human trafficking by providing them with specialized assistance on the road to recovery. There are several volunteer roles with invisible, varying levels of commitment time.
Be alert for signs of human trafficking. Getting an education on signs that might indicate that someone is a victim of human trafficking increases the likelihood of reporting it and can give a voice to victims who don't feel comfortable speaking for themselves. Signs that someone is a victim of human trafficking fall into several categories. Poor working and living conditions, poor mental health, and lack of control are some of the main areas to look for.
Lawyer. Meeting with or contacting local, state, and Federal representatives informs them that their constituents are passionate about fighting human trafficking and brings the issue to their attention. This increases the likelihood that they will do something. For example, the trafficking victims protection Act of 2000 is a cornerstone of anti-trafficking legislation in America, but it expired in 2011. Non-profit anti-trafficking organizations across the country are joining together to advocate for its re-authorization, which was granted in 2013.
Conduct awareness-raising activities. Raising awareness about human trafficking can also attract more people to participate and be interested in joining the fight. This can trigger a chain reaction that will lead to more people lobbying, fundraising, and educating themselves. No matter what the event is, they are effective ways to raise awareness of the cause and attract new followers.
Boycott products and companies that allow human trafficking. Many products manufactured in the United States and abroad are products of victims of human trafficking. Being honest about the products you consume and the companies you support is an easy way to contribute to the fight against human trafficking. An easy way to find out which products contribute to the "slavery trail" is to list products produced by child labor or forced labor by the Department of labor.
Help the survivors. Donate clothing and other goods to shelters for victims of human trafficking. Also, encourage businesses to provide jobs to survivors by helping them get back on their feet and start over. If applicable, providing legal advice to survivors gives them the opportunity to not only move forward, but also achieve justice. By helping survivors and helping them recover, we stop the cycle of trauma and ensure that it doesn't happen again.
To keep abreast. There are many non-profit anti-trafficking organizations that have blogs and updates that people can subscribe to, keeping them up to date with any new information or solutions to combat human trafficking. For example, the nonprofit Polaris Project offers email updates to anyone who chooses to subscribe.
Report suspicions-it is important to know the available resources. When traveling abroad, it is useful to look up the country's emergency phone number to be able to quickly report the discovery of a victim of human trafficking.
Help to deal with demand. The main factor that makes human trafficking such a big problem is the constant demand for cheap labor and exploitation. Traffickers most often turn to websites such as Craigslist and cover vulnerable potential victims. Providing stricter verification of the authenticity of such websites and offering jobs through more reliable online platforms attacks the problem at its root and stops human trafficking even before it starts.

Yes, this problem still persists. There are millions of children that are being sold into slavery today. How crazy is that? I had no idea that this still exists. I thought that slavery was something that was ended 200 years ago. Clearly I was wrong and many are no aware of this. We should spread this awareness by helping human trafficking outreach agencies. Easiest way is to make a donation, any sum of money can be helpful. We should help these kids that are being treated like that and thank God that agencies like that exist.
