Report suspected human trafficking

"Wisconsin, We Need to Talk" is a campaign to raise awareness about youth sex trafficking in Wisconsin. Trafficking occurs in cities, suburbs and rural areas, and is a statewide issue. Youth can be recruited online and in public spaces, and may not be aware that they are victims. If you suspect someone may be experiencing trafficking, you can report it at https://dcf.wisconsin.gov/reportabuse or by calling the National Human Trafficking Resource Center Hotline at 888-373-7888.
