National Council of Jewish Women of Canada, Toronto

February 22nd is National Human Trafficking Day.

The average age of recruitment into sex trafficking is 13 yrs old.

As parents, grandparents, teachers and friends, we all want to keep them safe. But, we don’t always know how we can, what to say, to ask and what to look for.

It’s hard to know where to start.  We can help.

NCJWC Toronto aims to work to increase awareness of Human Trafficking both locally & nationally, with the goal of preventing victimization.

We work with partners to create and facilitate conversations and helpful resources to arm parents, grandparents, educators and caregivers with information to have hard but important conversations within their families.

Start with sitting down and having a conversation – letting your child know that no matter what you will be there for them.

This allows the child to feel safe contacting the adult when he or she feels at risk.  And for the adult to assure the child that he or she will be there without judgement no matter what, where or when.

By reading and signing this document together, it allows for open discussion and may establish a stronger sense of trust between the child and the adult. It may even avert possible victimization.

You can start building mutual trust now. Download the document and take the pledge together.
