Despite the severity and magnitude of human trafficking, much of the general public in the U.S. remains unaware of the problem. However, experience has shown that most people are deeply moved and motivated to action when educated about the subject. Therefore, the speed with which we rid the world of trafficking depends in part upon the speed with which the public is made aware of the problem. This can be done in several ways. You can:
1. Distribute the address to this website: http://www.salvationarmyusa.org/trafficking
2. Request a free packet of information from us by emailing your request along with your name and address to firstname.lastname@example.org
3. Join a free email listserve for regular news and information related to sex trafficking, commercial sexual exploitation, and other human rights abuses (to join the list, send an email to: email@example.com)
4. Provide this and other important information on human trafficking to your local media
5. Arrange for experts to speak to various community groups
6. Give presentations yourself using the Dept. of Health & Human Services presentation tool found under “Campaign Toolkits.” click here
7. Initiate informal discussions with friends, colleagues or groups (classes, meetings, religious and community groups, etc.)
8. Distribute brochures and posters from the Rescue & Restore campaign located at http://www.acf.hhs.gov/trafficking

The Salvation Army’s U.S. Anti-Trafficking Training Manual
It is possible that health and human service providers encounter trafficking victims without even knowing it. Recognizing this likelihood, and in response to the multifaceted needs of trafficking survivors, The Salvation Army with funding received from the Office for Victims of Crime of the U.S. Department of Justice, has developed a specialized training manual designed to equip social service providers and others to recognize and serve victims of human trafficking.
The training manual provides seven easy to follow hour-long sessions, which include facilitator notes, as well as small group learning exercises. The sessions can be adapted for shorter training times. In addition to the training exercises, a comprehensive resource directory CD contains sample assessment forms, facts on human trafficking, a guide for lawyers, and extensive contact information on the many agencies working to assist trafficking victims. The full manual may be downloaded by clicking here. To download the Spanish version of the training manual, click here.
To obtain a copy of the resource CD, please contact Penny Matheson at 703-647-4780 or at firstname.lastname@example.org
