Trafficking Hotline

A trafficking hotline is a telephone service that provides information, support, and assistance to individuals who have experienced human trafficking or who are at risk of being trafficked. Trafficking hotlines are typically run by non-profit organizations, government agencies, or other organizations that are dedicated to combating human trafficking. They may be operated locally, regionally, or nationally, depending on the specific needs and resources of the area. Trafficking hotlines are typically confidential and anonymous, and they may offer services such as crisis counseling, referrals to support services, and legal assistance. Trafficking hotlines can be an important resource for individuals who are seeking help and support in escaping from trafficking situations.
