January is National Slavery and Human Trafficking Prevention Month. One of the best ways to help fight human trafficking is to learn how to recognize it and the protection that is available for victims.
Mosaic is hosting a free public training this Saturday, January 21, from 10:00 – 11:30 a.m. at our office. The training will provide an overview of human trafficking, warning signs to be aware of, and stories of trafficking cases from the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex.
There are lots of other great resources to increase you knowledge of human trafficking.
This month, the Department of Homeland Security launched this free human trafficking awareness training. In just 15 minutes, it covers the fundamentals of human trafficking, including how to recognize red flags.
Slaveryfootprint.org has also put out a great tool to help you become more aware of how many trafficking victims are involved in the production of items you use everyday.
Mosaic would also like to give a special thanks to the Rees-Jones Foundation, which has awarded $40,000 to support Mosaic’s comprehensive anti-trafficking efforts.
These funds will enable us to continue providing case management, shelter, counseling and legal services to survivors of human trafficking as well as education to the community on how to identify trafficking victims.
