Human Trafficking and Faith-Based Communities

Religious organizations are a powerful force uniquely situated to come into contact with victims of human trafficking. They are present everywhere: in countries of origin, transit and destination. In source countries they can help prevent human trafficking by raising awareness on the issue and by addressing the public and potential victims and their families about the risk and dire consequences of human trafficking. They may come into contact with victims of human trafficking while they are still under the control of the trafficker. They can provide assistance of all sorts to the victims and their families, and they can serve as an influential source of networking with various institutions. This video discusses ways in which religious organizations can help identify and provide services to victims.
