Survivor Policy for Press

The most common question we receive from the press is the request to talk to or interview a survivor of sex trafficking. Traffick911 has a very strict agency policy for providing survivors for interviews and will not, under any circumstances, provide or refer a survivor for this purpose. Regardless of his/her age, if their face will not be shown, voice changed, etc. After eight years of operation, we have found this process more often than not to be more harmful than helpful. We certainly recognize the importance of the public hearing the stories and becoming aware, but our first and foremost priority is protecting survivors and empowering them on their road to recovery.
