Absolutely! Sometimes we are our own worst enemy! We think we aren't good enough, smart enough, pretty enough, maybe we don't have enough money or we don't know the 'right" people. We think we will fail, or we may stumble and make a mistake, so we convince ourselves to give up before we even try.
We CAN DO and SUCCEED in anything that we are willing to work at, work for. Don't let your fears hold you back! The more you continue to try, even if you have to repeat the same step over and over again, every single time you try again, you empower yourself. Take your power back, overcome those fears and be amazing!

Setting boundaries is so important! In everything you do! Be aware of how your treated in every friendship, relationship, even professional relationships!

Remember the phrase, force, fraud, or coercion. Any time someone is trapped in an exploitative work situation through force, fraud, or coercion, human trafficking is happening. Force typically includes physical violence, and coercion can include threats – of violence, of harm, of outing, of deportation, of law enforcement or child protective services involvement.

01/13/2021

Education is Key

It is important for people to understand the scope of Human Trafficking. To know the types of trafficking that exist, to recognize targets, and how to get help. Human trafficking can happen to anyone but some people are more vulnerable than others. Significant risk factors include recent migration or relocation, substance use, mental health concerns, involvement with the child welfare system, and being a runaway or homeless youth. Often, traffickers identify and leverage their victims’ vulnerabilities in order to create dependency.
