Your Role is Important Video Transcript

Benjamin Perrin, Assistant Professor, Faculty of Law, University of British Columbia;

Thank you for being part of the solution. We know that trafficking victims often cannot help themselves, and it’s only by individuals who know the indicators, or warning signs, of human trafficking, to allow them to see these invisible chains in front of them that can allow for an opportunity for this person to finally be free of these exploiters. And you just don’t know there will be another chance for that person or not. When early intervention has happened it has prevented huge misery and suffering. There’s a real opportunity here to let these victims become survivors, and that’s your role. And not all of us have the skills that you do. That’s really a huge part of the solution.
