Train ER Doctors to Identify Human Trafficking Victims


Emergency room personnel are a first line of defense against human trafficking. Victims will be taken to the emergency room to recover from abuses associated with trafficking or other accidents and illnesses. Sometimes, ER personnel may be the first professional people a trafficking victim is allowed contact with. Therefore, it is critical they understand the signs and symptoms of human trafficking, so as to better provide help for the victims.

Letter to
American College of Emergency Physicians
As an ally to emergency professionals and an anti-trafficking advocate, I'm asking you to make a commitment to offer training to ER doctors on how to identify human trafficking victims.

Emergency room personnel are a first line of defense against human trafficking. Victims will be taken to the emergency room to recover from abuses associated with trafficking or other accidents and illnesses. Sometimes, ER personnel may be the first professional people a trafficking victim is allowed contact with. Therefore, it is critical they understand the signs and symptoms of human trafficking, so as to better provide help for the victims.

Please make this commitment and help us fight human trafficking.

Sincerely,
