Sex Trafficking: What is it?

Environmental Health


This video has a trigger warning for sensitive content of sexual exploitation and trafficking. The video recognizes that information might feel overwhelming and difficult to process, but it is important to remember that it could be happening to someone you know and to focus on supporting survivors. It includes a definition of sex trafficking and grooming, as well as examples of how traffickers might lie, manipulate, and threaten victims. The video emphasizes that sex trafficking is always illegal and never the victim’s fault, and it might be more common than you think. It encourages young people to identify trusted adults to talk to if a situation arises in their lives, and to keep an eye out for injuries that don’t make sense, absences from school, keeping to themselves, or seeming tired. People could show these signs for other reasons and individual reactions to trafficking look different – check in with people just in case. Classroom favorite.
