According to a study done by the Polaris Project, only 2% of all potential human trafficking cases are reported each year in Illinois.
Training Organizations In Our Communities
Human Trafficking plagues our communities, cities, suburbs, and rural areas alike. Chicago is a national hub for travel and that means the neighboring municipalities, travel routes, and states experience a flood of human trafficking activity.
Providing those that work within our communities, on our streets and in homes with the resources, tools, and knowledge of how to identify and report human trafficking could mean saving many lives.
Utility, Municipal, Parks Services, Law Enforcement, Schools, Churches, and anyone else that lives and works within our communities can be trained on how to identify human trafficking.
Provision Lab has partnered with Aqua America Illinois to train its field staff on how to identify and report human trafficking as they are doing work in our communities, on our streets and in homes.
Their commitment to solving human trafficking has lead to a pioneering effort that will lead to potentially countless victims being rescued.
