Forced Labor: The Other Type of Human Trafficking

Forced Labor: The Other Type of Human Trafficking

When Nita Belles first researched human trafficking, she focused on sex trafficking – the exploitation of young people, mostly girls, for the sexual gratification of others. But as she delved into her studies, Belles – founder of the anti-trafficking group In Our Backyard – also learned about another widespread type of exploitation: labor trafficking.

End Human Trafficking: In Our Backyard

Want to reach out to victims of human trafficking with a message of hope? Motivated to protect your children and keep our community safe? Join us for one of our community outreach days to visit local businesses and ask them to place Freedom Stickers, containing the National Human Trafficking Hotline number, in their restrooms. Our hope is to create a path of freedom across Central Oregon* for victims of human trafficking prior to the Eclipse.

Watch for someone signaling “HT” in sign language who wants help. Call 911 or the hotline.
