This video about Shyima Hall is a beautiful story of a young girl who was trafficked in Egypt and forced to come to the United States and continue her life as a modern day slave, until a stranger, who was aware of the signs of trafficking, called in a tip and the authorities were able to rescue her.
This story is a great reminder that we can help prevent trafficking. Be aware of those around you and of the signs of trafficking. Put the human trafficking hotline number in your phone (1-888-373-7888) so you can do your best to prevent trafficking in your community. For information of what the signs are visit our “signs of human trafficking” page or visit The Polaris Project’s “Recognizing the Signs page.“
