"What we need are people who are brave enough to stand up against these forces. We need people to step up and be heroes."Mira Sorvino, UN Goodwill Ambassador on Human Trafficking
By raising awareness about trafficking, you are bringing to light a crime that is shrouded in darkness and often goes unreported. When people see the issue more clearly, they can then act! Your work advocating against human trafficking is invaluable. For human trafficking to end, we need a critical mass of people to understand the problem and know how to recognize the signs.
Start by educating yourself about human trafficking and how it affects you and your community. Become informed to protect yourself and others around you. Most victims of slavery and trafficking had no idea this could happen to them.
Our hotline is not associated with law enforcement or any government agencies. Your right to confidentially and privacy will be protected at your request. If a victim’s situation is life threating, we encourage you to call 911 and report his/her location to the police.
CAST provides services to Los Angeles County. For services outside of Los Angeles County, please call the National Human Trafficking Hotline at 888-373-7888.
When you call the CAST hotline our hotline advocates will ask you some basic demographic questions, provide community referrals and/or complete our short prescreening questions to receive long term social services or legal services. Our goal is to help victims of human trafficking acquire legal protection, food, shelter and medical care. All our services are free.
CAST has been recognized by the United Nations, the White House, the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office and the City of Los Angeles, so you can feel confident that your gift will support the very best programs available to human trafficking survivors.
Your financial gift plays a vital role in protecting and empowering survivors of human trafficking. We rely on your support to help survivors escape dangerous situations, recover from serious trauma and begin to dream again. You make it possible for them to reclaim freedom and live with dignity.
