Raising Teen Awareness and reaching out to Survivors
According to National Incidence Studies of Missing, Abducted,
Runaway, and Throwaway Children, an estimated 1 out of every 3 children that run away is lured into sex trafficking within 48 hours. US girls and boys are at risk of being lured into sex trafficking, and immigrants are being trafficked for labor, servitude, and the sex trade from Central America and beyond.
Our Red Flag Campaign efforts are three pronged:
- Educate business operators and workers along the I-35 corridor in Denton County on the Red Flag signs of Human Trafficking.
- Educate families on the Red Flag warnings to avoid predators.
- Continue to facilitate immigration cases for Human Trafficking survivors.
