Create a fundraiser. This not only helps spread awareness, but can greatly help an anti-trafficking organization in your community. Fundraisers can be as simple as selling your gently used clothing or as elaborate as hosting a silent auction or having a garage sale.
Host an Event
It can be as simple as a potluck, or Nefarious Documentary Screening, or as elaborate as a concert. Hosting events helps spread the word about trafficking and helps others gain a better understanding of what’s really going on in our community.
Attend an Event

This one is most important! Chose to value people, think of ways to value people, look for ways to add value to people, value people, and encourage others to add value to people.

Foster or Support At-Risk Youth
A majority of U.S. minors who find themselves victims of sex trafficking come from broken homes or are runaways. 1 In 6 endangered runaways are likely trafficked for sex, and approximately 68% of those sex trafficking survivors were in the care of social services or foster care when they ran away. You can also support at-risk youth by volunteering at shelters, with youth groups, helping/working in after school programs, etc.
