North Carolina’s Response to Human Trafficking
Project No Rest is a statewide project to increase awareness and prevention around human trafficking and how it affects our children and young people in North Carolina. Partnering with The UNC School of Social Work, the goal is to shine a light into the shadow that is human trafficking and reduce the number of youth trafficked while improving the lives of those affected by trafficking.
Learn the Signs
Human Trafficking is one of the most difficult crimes to spot, because victims look like ordinary people. However, there are signs that can help identify yourself and others as potential trafficking victims. Learning the red flags and potential indicators is the first step in getting the help you or a victim needs.
