“The Exploitation Response Plan prepares church communities to respond safely and effectively to someone asking for help out of a situation of exploitation and human trafficking. Participants are trained in three areas: Be a Safe Place, Assessment Tools, and Referral Resources. The training provides information about the impact of trauma and shame, triggers to watch out for, and how to create a safe space for conversation, how to ask helpful questions to assess need and how to make an appropriate referral, and receive a list of resources and material for next steps. The training will help churches know what to do if a victim of human trafficking walks through the doors of the church.”  Source: Exploitation Response Plan by The Abolitionist Network.
