Q: What can I do if I believe a young person is being trafficked?

A: To report suspected trafficking, call the Human Trafficking Hotline at 1-888-3737-888.

We’d also encourage you to look at NCFY's “Bought and Sold," which provides helpful information about who is most at risk, what victims need, and when to involve the police. It also includes contact information for a number of national resource groups.

A new campaign against youth sexual exploitation is It’s Not My Fault, which evolved when Super Bowl preparations spurred advocates in North Texas to address sex trafficking in their own back yards. The site offers videos and other free tools to spread awareness about commercial exploitation of young people.
