  • Join a local coalition. Missouri Anti-Trafficking coalitions are local, collaborative efforts to address human trafficking. While some coalitions are comprised of specific community members who serve trafficking victims through their profession, many coalitions are open to the public. Public coalitions strive to bring awareness to their communities about human trafficking and support anti-trafficking organizations who directly serve victims and survivors. These coalitions provide a great opportunity to get involved in the fight against human trafficking at a local level.

Conscientious Consumerism

As a way to support anti-trafficking efforts, consider “Conscientious Consumerism.” This is a practice of intentionally shopping at stores that support fair wages and practices for their supply chain which ultimately lowers the risk of buying products that have been made via labor trafficking.

Here are some tips for practicing this while shopping:

  • Choose specific products that you use a lot and change to a Fair Trade brand. Common examples are coffee, chocolate and tea. Fair Trade brands are available at many retailers.
  • Buy refurbished electronics.
  • Buy second hand products.
  • Shop local.
  • Do your research and try to shop at companies that actively police their supply chains to ensure their products are made ethically.
  • If your local businesses do not have fair trade options, ask them to begin stocking Fair Trade items. If enough people ask for them, they may add Fair Trade options to their product list.
