Reviews from other activists

I see forms of trafficking in my country (Sweden). The course helped me towards recognizing the different types of trafficking and how to inform others about it while taking active steps to help those in need.

Daniel

This course provided excellent information regarding human trafficking in the United States. When I learned about human trafficking previously, it was most often spoken about on the global scale. This course took an in-depth look at human trafficking specifically in our communities right here in the U.S.

TraffickWatch FAQ

What is TraffickWatch Academy?

TraffickWatch is an initiative of the anti-human trafficking nonprofit The Exodus Road. TraffickWatch Academy is a part of that initiative, a digital training platform designed to equip law enforcement, leaders, and citizens in the fight against human trafficking.

These are our current TraffickWatch resources:

  • TraffickWatch Academy U.S. This free two-module series focuses on the basics of human trafficking and how to keep communities safe, both globally and in America.

Where did you get your statistics and resources for TraffickWatch Academy?

Our primary sources for the information shared on Traffickwatch Academy can be found at Global Slavery Index, the U.S. Trafficking In Persons Report, Polaris, and the International Labor Organization.

All video resources are produced by The Exodus Road. TraffickWatch Academy Brazil resources come from a variety of Brazilian experts. Those sources are cited within the training platform.

Why is this training important?

Awareness training is a form of human trafficking prevention. Training like this can be a highly effective way for law enforcement, leaders, citizens, organizations, schools, and businesses to recognize and deter human trafficking.

Human trafficking is a significant social justice issue in our world. Unfortunately, few people have access to education that equips them to understand the issue and identify the warning signs. When passionate people are equipped with knowledge about how to recognize and prevent exploitation in their local communities, a significant impact on freedom becomes possible.
