Realize the trafficker may be a parent, guardian, grandparent, neighbor, uncle, boyfriend. girlfriend, family friend, or classmate.
Explain the limits of confidentiality & mandated reporting.
Trust your instincts; trafficking happens across all groups: ethnic, socioeconomic, religions, sexualities, education, and genders.
If possible, speak to the person alone (you don’t know who may be the trafficker).
Tell the person something like, “My responsibility is to make sure you are safe. Abuse can take many forms-physical, emotional, financial, and sexual.”
Then ask age-appropriate questions like:
Remind the person you believe them, they deserve to be safe, abuse is NEVER their fault, and you want to help. Then together, contact:
