Human Trafficking

Human trafficking is a threat to human dignity and can occur in a broad range of locations, industries, and demographics of people. Prison ministers and volunteers may confront past or present human trafficking in their work, so it is critical that ministers are aware of what human trafficking is, what signs of trafficking to look for, and how to support victims and survivors of trafficking in its many forms.

What is human trafficking?

To support ministers in learning more about this critical topic, we have compiled resources in one place. We have included all of CPMC’s webinars and town halls on this topic, as well as resources from our partners on this webpage.
