Report child exploitation
If you see a young person on the street soliciting sex, do not approach them. Go to a safe place where you can see the youth as their exploiter may be watching them. Call 911 and tell them that you know that this is a minor and that you believe they are being “commercially sexually exploited”. Provide details: time, exact location, description of the youth, suspected exploiters and vehicle picking up the youth.
You can also report suspected self-selling or trafficking to your school principal, nurse, counselor or police.
Report suspicious activity. You are not snitching. You may be saving someone’s life.

WHO WE ARE
The Disrupt Sex Trafficking campaign was created by Abolitionist Mom. We strives to inspire social change with breakthrough public service advertising. We design campaigns to reframe issues and affect deeply seated attitudes and behaviors. Partnering with survivors of exploitation and allied organizations, Abolitionist Mom works to raise awareness of and prevent human trafficking.
Posters are available for schools and public displays.
The Disrupt Sex Trafficking campaign was made possible by many people who care, and was reviewed by 20+ people with lived experience with human trafficking.
