Commitment No. 1

Gain Personal Awareness 

As a Friend, your First Commitment is to learn some basics about human trafficking in our region and what the Task Force does.


The General Introductory Brochure describes what the Task Force does, its committees and its working groups. It’s handy to understand what we do — and to print out a few of these brochures to have on hand to offer others.

Our Human Trafficking Brochure describes some of the most common signs of human trafficking and what to do if you suspect human trafficking. Please be familiar with the contents of this brochure, and share it online or as a printed paper with anyone you think may find it useful.
