What is one thing people don't talk about when it comes to Human Trafficking that they should?

The following are responses from Restore Corps team members in response to the question asking "What is one thing people don't talk about when it comes to Human Trafficking that they should?"

Response #1: "I think movies have wrapped people's perception of what HT looks like for the everyday person. I think there should be more conversations around familial trafficking. I think in regards to domestic specifically local case, this is a much more common occurrence that people are aware of."

Response #2: "People assume that it is conventional kidnapping - someone tagging your car to target you for someone to then take you away. This is largely NOT what it looks like. Trafficking is statistically mostly by people the survivor knows, and it is a process of manipulation that puts the survivor in bondage more and more overtime."

Response #3: "People should know and talk about how diverse Human Trafficking really is. Some people consider Human Trafficking to be narrow and only involving certain people or groups of people. However, the reality of human trafficking is the diversity of it can involve any person from any background, a neighbor, a relative, a friend, etc. Human trafficking is so much bigger than people really think of it."
