The Office for Victims of Crime, within the DOJ, developed a video series to help raise awareness of human trafficking among social, legal, and health-care service providers; law enforcement; related professionals; and other community members. The nine-part series includes information about sex and labor trafficking, multidisciplinary approaches to serving victims of human trafficking, effective victim services, victims’ legal needs, and voices of survivors. Spanish subtitles are available for each video, and each also is accompanied by a discussion guide.
