Human trafficking is often a difficult topic to talk about – and even more challenging for those working to end human trafficking every day. There are more than 40 million human trafficking victims worldwide, including men, women and children trapped in forms of modern slavery: from forced labor to sexual exploitation. Human trafficking occurs in nearly every country around the globe stemming from both in-person and online targeting.

January is National Human Trafficking Prevention Month. To honor this special month, ECPAT-USA was proud to host a panel, “Dismantling Online Exploitation of Children,” with other leaders in the anti-trafficking and children’s rights communities. Together, the collective goal is to spearhead federal legislation that will require internet platforms to take steps toward the elimination of child sexual abuse material (CSAM), formerly called “child pornography.”

Each year, the Survivor Solidarity Ride brings awareness to the reality that child trafficking is happening in every state in the nation. This ride highlights locations where survivors have indicated they were trafficked and where there have been reports of child exploitation. In doing so, it symbolizes ECPAT-USA’s solidarity with the brave men and women in its Survivors’ Council and celebrates their leadership in ECPAT-USA’s prevention programming. In 2020, ECPAT-USA rode through New York City. In 2021, as celebration of the launch of Brentwood School District Prevention Services Program, ECPAT-USA rode through Suffolk County, New York.

At the start of the period, instead of sitting in the semicircle with the rest of their classmates, this student opted to find a seat behind a desk in the back left corner of the room. When handing out the pre-workshop…
