End Child Trafficking

End Child Trafficking

End Trafficking 1.6.14 header
Thousands of children are trafficked right here in the United States.  These kids are not criminals, they are victims.  Give them what they need to go from victims to survivors.
Signs a child is being trafficked:
  • Knows little about his or her whereabouts
  • Works excessively long hours
  • Exhibits fear or anxious behavior
  • Was hired with false promises
  • Has inconsistencies with his or her story
If you suspect someone is a victim of trafficking, call the National Human Trafficking Hotline 1-888-373-7888.
The End Trafficking Project is the U.S. Fund for UNICEF’s initiative to raise awareness about child trafficking and mobilize communities to take meaningful action to help protect children. The End Trafficking project works in partnership with individuals and groups to bring us closer to the day when there are ZERO exploited children.
They are our children. Learn the signs.

Protect Children from Violence, Exploitation and Abuse

Recent reports have shown that the majority of identified child trafficking victims have had contact, often multiple times, with the child welfare system. H.R. 1732 and S.1823 help use existing resources to better serve vulnerable youth and is an important step in creating the safety net we need to end child trafficking in the United States.
Write your elected officials. Strengthening standards in child protection services will help fight child trafficking. Your voice can make a difference.
