How to combat Human Trafficking from our own home?

The National Human Rights Commission in Mexico indicates that social tolerance of exploiting other human beings is one of the greatest factors that contributes to human trafficking.  Therefore, through their anti-trafficking program they are working on a National Campaign that seeks to directly address the factors that fuel human trafficking in order to increase vigilance and self-care to avoid becoming a victim of human trafficking. 

  1. Memorize important telephone numbers in case you need help.
  2. Let others know about your plans so that they can find you if needed.
  3. Talk to others about the topic, especially with children. 
  4. Be wary of strangers, even if they seem trustworthy.  Do not give out any personal information directly or through social media.
  5. A large number of cases of exploitation are committed by people close to the victims.  
  6. Care for your home environment.  Many cases of trafficking stem from internal violence within families.
  7. Listen.  Good relationships and communication are fundamental. 
  8. Build respect between all members of the family.  Women and men are equal in dignity. 
  9. Don’t allow anyone to pressure you into doing something that embarrasses you, that bothers you, or that you don’t want to. 
  10. Talk with children and adolescents about the important of caring for their body and privacy. 
  11. In online social networks you might find someone attractive or someone who seems interesting, but be careful because they could be false profiles.
