Assistance to Survivors of Human Trafficking
What is human trafficking?
Human trafficking is a public health issue that impacts individuals, families, and communities. Traffickers exploit other human beings by targeting at-risk populations including persons who have experienced or been exposed to other forms of violence or sexual abuse, and persons disconnected from stable support networks such as runaway and homeless youth, unaccompanied minors, migrant farm workers, and persons displaced during natural disasters. Human trafficking includes labor and sex trafficking.
The Legal Aid of Western Missouri has developed a brochure providing information to survivors of human trafficking. If you are a survivor or know a current victim of human trafficking, please read the brochure provided below by the Legal Services of Western Missouri.
It may provide you with the information you need to help you.
