Be a voice

There are many ways you can become involved with the fight for human rights. Here are a few ways to use your voice in your community and government.

Advocate for cultural change

Speak out against rape culture. Talk with your children about what consent means. Resist attempts to force children to accept unwanted physical contact out of misguided beliefs about respect and politeness.

Write to your representatives

Visit the Polaris Project where you can learn about upcoming bills in Congress and easily voice your support for anti-trafficking legislation.

Encourage intersectional industry collaboration

First responders, medical health care professionals, teachers, truck drivers, people in the tourism industry (hotels, airlines, etc.), and faith-based community organizations and NGOs are all on the front lines, in a position to identify and try to help potential victims of trafficking. Visit the Department of Homeland Security’s Blue Campaign to learn more about how various industries can collaborate to combat trafficking.
