Causecast is the social network for social good.

In How To Helo Human Trafficking, the Causecast blog gives the following suggestions:
Step One: Educate Yourself
Human trafficking takes on many different forms, sometimes using new methods to disguise itself. The best way to begin to fight against human trafficking is to educate yourself about the problem’s complexities. You can’t fix a problem if you don’t understand it and you can’t spread the word if you can’t explain it.
Step Two: Spread the Word
While it’s really important to understand about all the different types of human trafficking, it’s easier to make a tangible difference when you focus on one specific aspect of the problem at a time.
Step Three: Dollah Dollah Bills, Ya’ll
Of course, money is always an integral part of campaigning for any cause, and human trafficking is no exception.
Step Four: Time to Act
Giving money is great, but it’s only a part of the solution. Check out the Polaris Project Action Center for some hands-on ways you can help. For example, Polaris is pushing Congress to allocate federal funding for human trafficking victims. Call your senators and representatives to let them know how you feel about this issue.
Step Five: Keep It Up!
Remember, technology is your friend. Even the most dedicated of us can’t always keep up with our causes 24/7. So sometimes, it’s a good idea to bring the cause to you.
