In the moments between freedom and slavery, Love Justice transit monitors are trained to see what others miss. Watch the following video to see how they intervene at the most strategic moment—while trafficking is in the process of occurring and BEFORE men, women, and children have been exploited or enslaved.
To date, Love Justice has 59 different transit monitoring stations located where trafficking occurs—near important border crossings or transit hubs in Nepal, India, Bangladesh, South Africa, Zimbabwe, Malawi, Kenya, Uganda, Benin, Tanzania, Sierra Leone, Ghana, Rwanda, Namibia, Cambodia, Mozambique, and Lesotho.
When highly trained Love Justice monitors notice a sign of trafficking, they stop the suspected trafficker and potential victim for an interview to determine if trafficking is occurring. If their suspicions are confirmed, they continue their questioning, separating the potential victim from the suspect.
If additional questioning reveals other inconsistencies and heightened concerns, they take action by contacting the potential victim’s family, questioning the suspect, and if the situation warrants it, contacting the police to deal with the suspected trafficker further.
The potential victim is then taken to one of our shelters for protection, aftercare, and education about the dangers of trafficking as our staff members assess if it is safe for them to return home. In addition, our team interviews them to gather data and criminal intelligence to assist our process of convicting traffickers. When possible, they also guide them through the process of filing a legal case against the suspect.
Through the faithful support of our donors, we have intercepted over 23,000 vulnerable people to prevent them from being trafficked. Click here to take a closer look at our work to stop human trafficking and to find out how you can help.
