How to Help Protect Your Children from Human Trafficking in Michigan.
Be aware of your surroundings!
Michigan's proximity to the Canadian border and waterways increases the likelihood of human trafficking in our state. We need to be extra cautious with our children.
Talk to your children about sex trafficking!
Have an age-appropriate discussion with your children about the dangers. Help them to understand how traffickers can trick them and that only trusted adults should ever take them anywhere. They need to realize a trafficker isn't always a stranger. Traffickers can be male or female, old or young.
