  • Stop Human Trafficking Today Project

    Stop Human Trafficking Today is a project of Texas RioGrande Legal Aid. Our team educates the community on the issue of human trafficking by providing workshops and presentations to community members, as well as social service providers and law enforcement. We also provide direct outreach to various communities within our service area to help identify victims of modern day slavery.
  • Victims of Trafficking and Their Needs

    There are four general areas of victim needs: * Immediate assistance - Housing, food, medical, safety and security, language interpretation and legal services * Mental health assistance - Counseling * Income assistance - Cash, living assistance * Legal status - T visa, immigration, certification

    Victims of human trafficking are vulnerable human beings who have been subjected to severe physical and emotional coercion. Trafficking victims are usually in desperate need of assistance. They need to know that once they come in contact with social service providers and law enforcement, they are safe and will be protected.
  • Choice

    You cannot make a choice to be a slave.

    Not all victims of human trafficking are undocumented.

    Not all victims have crossed international borders.
