Up to 800,000 women, children and men are trafficked across borders every year into forced labor and sex slavery. Thousands of these women and children are trafficked for travelers to use as prostitutes. Oasis has designed a way for you to help stop the traffick when you are travelling.
Would you know how to spot slavery if you saw it? Here are some signs:
• A child soliciting sex
• Workplaces designed to prohibit escape
• Evidence of workers being controlled physically or psychologically
• Bruises or other signs of physical abuse
• Inexperienced sex worker
• Lack of compensation for their work
Are you suspicious that there may be slavery? Call the US Department of Health and Human Services referral hotline number (888-3737-888).
