I think I may be trafficked

It is important to first think about your safety!
Both physically and emotionally.

What to do now?

  • Think about your safety, physically and emotionally
  • Understand this is not your fault and do not blame yourself
  • Understand you deserve to be in control of your own body, mind, money, and life
  • Come up with a safety plan with someone you trust and do not share your plan with your trafficker
  • Know there are people and agencies out there who want to help you

What can you do now?

  • Surround yourself with supportive people
  • Take a deep look at why you are involved
  • Work with a professional to unpack your baggage
  • Keep working with which ever program works for you
  • Consider the consequences

Not ready to leave, but still want to be safe?

  • Find one person you trust and buddy up with them
  • Create check in times for with that person and stick to them
  • Create a “safe word” and use it if you are in trouble
  • Do not do out calls
  • Hide a cell phone to call 911 (inside the lining of a purse is useful). Remember, old cell phones with no service can still call 911
