Engage Together is an organization that helps educate people and organizations on how to identify and report human trafficking. Did you know that each county in Tennessee has reported cases of human trafficking? It is quickly rising and is now the second highest crime in the state. Nashville has many organizations that work to help the victims of human trafficking. Hermitage Hills Baptist Church is working with these organizations to provide support to the work they are already doing. One of the biggest needs in fighting human trafficking is for people to educate themselves on what human trafficking is and how to report it when recognized.
The National Human Trafficking Hotline number is 1-888-373-7888. If you see something that concerns you regarding sex or labor trafficking, please call the number to report the concern. Often times, reporting helps the local authorities to know where to investigate.
