Rescue & Restore Victims of Human Trafficking


Look Beneath The Surface

A victim of trafficking may look like many of the people you see every day.  The Rescue and Restore campaign increases the identification of trafficking victims in the United States and helps those victims receive the benefits and services they need to restore their lives.  The campaign enlists those who are most likely to encounter but not recognize victims of human trafficking.
