Did you know there is a Human Trafficking Hotline?
Each year, millions of men, women, and children are trafficked worldwide including right here in the United States. In 2020 alone there were over 1,300 reported cases in California. If you or someone you know is a victim of human trafficking, the National Human Trafficking Hotline is available to help.

The National Human Trafficking Hotline is operated by a nonprofit group, Polaris. They have assisted thousands of victims and survivors, have helped ensure countless traffickers were held accountable, and have built the largest known U.S. data set on trafficking experiences.

To get help from the National Human Trafficking Hotline, call 1-888-373-7888 or text HELP or INFO to 233733 (BEFREE). To learn more ways you can help fight human trafficking click here.
