On World Day against Trafficking, a Round-up of Anti-Trafficking Resources

Did you know that July 30th is World Day against Trafficking in Persons?  The United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime chose “responding to the trafficking of children and young people” and “highlighting the importance of government action,” as the focus areas of 2019’s World Day. To mark this day, Switchboard is highlighting anti-trafficking resources for providers working to serve children and youth, prevent trafficking and serve victims, and spread awareness about trafficking.
