Human trafficking is a global and national epidemic and the most vulnerable victims are our nation's children. All U.S. children are at risk for trafficking. Because of the violent nature of this crime, every day child victims must see healthcare providers for treatment of their injuries. A shocking estimated 87 percent of victims have visited a nurse, physician or other provider without being identified as a trafficking victim. Please help us raise money to eliminate child trafficking through early identification and awareness.
The Alliance for Children in Trafficking, a national awareness and education campaign of NAPNAP Partners for Vulnerable Youth, has launched a grassroots, peer-to-peer education campaign for healthcare providers. Trained providers, known as ACT Advocates, will assist peers with implementing protocols and integrating multidisciplinary community stakeholders. This essential training for nurses, physicians, nurse practitioners and physician assistants will increase their ability to quickly identify and assist child trafficking victims and spot risk factors to prevent children from becoming victims. Donate today to help us protect vulnerable children.
