Annotation: These resources provided by the U.S. Justice Department’s Office for Victims of Crime (OVC) are intended to advance justice for human-trafficking victims by providing local organizations with tools to use throughout the year at public-awareness, education, and training events that focus on the features, causes, identification, and services for human-trafficking victims.
Abstract: These resources feature a series of nine videos intended for use in outreach and education for and by victim service providers, law enforcement agencies, prosecutors, and other strategic community organizations and persons. The video series includes information on human trafficking for sex and labor exploitation, approaches for effectively serving victims of these crimes, victims’ legal needs, and voices of survivors. A discussion guide, four OVC Fact Sheets, and four posters accompany the video series and are available for downloading. They can be used to augment training sessions and generate discussion. The Fact Sheets provide an introduction to human trafficking, information on the legal needs and rights of human-trafficking victims in the United States, on the special considerations and needs of youth victims, and promising practices for building effective collaborations in addressing human trafficking. The posters target specific audiences, including service providers and allied professionals, law enforcement personnel, the general public, and victims/survivors. Sample public service announcements are also provided.
