Recognize the signs (red flags) that may indicate that a person is a potential trafficking victim.

Protect trafficked persons through prevention and by welcoming and clothing them with kindness, mercy, and compassion.

Look into (through) the window of the life of a person who has suffered torture and enslavement.
