Good day everyone. 

I have a special message to parents, grandparents, aunts and uncles, teachers, and anyone that has any influence on teenagers.

They need to know the signs and dangers of Human Trafficking.

Please wake up. It is all around us.

I don’t care that teenagers think they are in their thirties and know everything. They are very vulnerable. 

Many reports are saying 12-14 is the prime victim now of predators.

  1. I am sorry but tell them to trust no one.

  2. If they have a bad or uneasy feeling about something get away from it. Could be people, parties, or location. I heard a professional say most victims say they didn’t feel good about the situation they were in but didn’t leave.

  3. Please monitor the teens' social media. It is your duty parents.

There are also many signs and things to be aware of that could indicate someone is being trafficked. Here are some of the signs. 

  1. Appearing Malnourished

  2. Showing signs of physical injuries and abuse

  3. Avoiding eye contact, and social interaction, with authority figures/law enforcement

  4. Seeming to adhere to scripted or rehearsed responses in social interaction

  5. Lacking official identification documents

  6. Appearing destitute/lacking personal possessions

  7. Working excessively long hours

  8. Living at the place of employment 

  9. Poor physical or dental health

  10. Checking into hotels/motels with older males and referring to those males as a boyfriend or "daddy", which is often street island for a pimp

  11. Tattoos/branding on the neck and/or lower back

  12. Untreated sexually transmitted diseases

  13. Small children serving in a family restaurant

  14. Security measures that appear to keep people inside an establishment

  15. Not allowing people to go into public alone, or, speak for themselves
