#HumanTrafficking101 Social Media Video Series

Human trafficking is a complex crime, but Blue Campaign helps break it down so you can better understand what it is, what it looks like, and how to report it.  We offer a number of video and print resources that you can use to inform yourself and your community about the crime.

For example, our animated infographic video (now available in Spanish) can be used to educate individuals about the foundational elements of human trafficking.  It clearly defines the crime, explains different types of human trafficking (forced labor, sex trafficking, and domestic servitude), and details actions the public can take to combat it.
