Why is awareness and training so important?

Awareness training and programming is a form of human trafficking prevention. Research indicates that human trafficking awareness training can be a highly effective way for police officers, leaders, individuals, organizations, schools, and businesses to help fight human trafficking. Though human trafficking is a significant social justice issue in our world, many people do not understand it and cannot recognize the warning signs. When front-line leaders and concerned citizens are equipped with knowledge about how to recognize and prevent this abuse in their local communities, a significant impact on freedom is possible.
