Human Trafficking 101: Community Members to Learn the Indicators of Human Trafficking


GOLDSBORO (NC): Cry Freedom Missions is partnering with NC Stop Human Trafficking to present a Human Trafficking 101 education session for community members to learn the red flags of human trafficking and how to report suspicions safely at 6 p.m. on Monday, Jan. 20, 2020, at The First Church, 1100 The 1st Church Road, Goldsboro.


As North Carolina consistently ranks in the top 10 in the U.S. for human trafficking cases, it is paramount for community members to learn about the reality of human trafficking in the state.


Educating the community about this crime is integral in prevention and victim recovery. During Human Trafficking 101, attendees will learn the red flags and warning signs of human trafficking, examine human trafficking cases in North Carolina, and learn how to report suspicions safely using the National Human Trafficking Hotline.


“Human trafficking is right now, a $150 billion dollar industry, second only to drugs,” said Cry Freedom Missions Executive Director Beverly Weeks.


“Think of it like this, a bag of drugs can be sold but one time. However, a person can be sold over and over again to multiple people. We are stronger when we come together and partner together to fight these atrocities. At Cry Freedom Missions it’s our passion and desire to work boldly and fiercely together with our local community as well as communities and authorities across the state and the nation to reach, rescue and restore survivors of sex and human trafficking.”
