July 2016Vol. 17, No. 5Human Trafficking Video Series
The Office for Victims of Crime, within the U.S. Department of Justice's Office of Justice Programs, developed a video series to help raise awareness of human trafficking among social, legal, and health-care service providers; law enforcement; related professionals; and other community members. The nine-part series includes information about sex and labor trafficking, multidisciplinary approaches to serving victims of human trafficking, effective victim services, victims' legal needs, and voices of survivors. Spanish subtitles are available for each video, and each also is accompanied by a discussion guide highlighting key points, providing discussion questions, and offering suggested supplemental training materials.
Also available are four posters targeting specific audiences and four factsheets providing an introduction to human trafficking, information on the legal needs and rights of victims of trafficking in the United States, information on special considerations and needs of youth victims, and promising practices for building effective collaborations to address human trafficking.
