WHAT IS HUMAN TRAFFICKING

Human Trafficking is an exploitive, violent, criminal enterprise in Indiana and the Midwest; 178 trafficked youths were identified and served by one Indiana service provider in 2016 alone, with some victims trafficked as young as age 7. The Indiana Protection for Abused and Trafficked Humans (IPATH) task force began its work in 2005 and is now a thriving, state-wide coalition of state agencies, law enforcement, service providers, faith based and community groups collaboratively working to prosecute traffickers, protect and serve victims and prevent future trafficking. 

The SHARE Group collaborates with IPATH by sponsoring educational training events. More than One thousand, two hundred plus (1,200+) professionals and the public in our region have attended our workshops, bringing awareness to human rights, abuse and be an advocate to do everything we can to fight against it.

 

Ongoing training is critical to build awareness to identify, refer, and respond effectively to human trafficking in Indiana. Collaboration is critical for preventing exploitation of vulnerable groups, identifying trafficked persons in our communities, as well as facilitating safe pathways to seek help and receive services.  We have come a long way in fighting against human trafficking, but much is still needed in the battling this horrific crime through Prosecution, Protection and Prevention.
