People, Not Products
Like everyone, the little residential neighborhood appreciated the ability for children to play,
socialize, and make lifelong friends safely. However, one neighbor noted something odd was
starting to happen in the house across from her. Cars were coming and going at all times of the
day and night, which was unusual. She soon realized that different people were entering and
leaving home all day and night. Placing a call to the National Human Trafficking Hotline at
1-888-373-7888, she reported the house's unusual activity to the police. Through an
investigation based on her observations, victims were rescued.
We are not safer by thinking that human trafficking is not our problem. Love Without Reason
created a collaboration of those in Tennessee involved in the fight against human trafficking.

People, Not Products aims to educate the public regarding awareness campaigns that fight human
trafficking and patterns that feed human trafficking on the local, national, and international
Why did people like this neighbor think to call the National Human Trafficking Hotline? Because
of law enforcement officials' and organizations' education in an open public forum that shared
insight and awareness into the crime of human trafficking.
Awareness education is a critical component in fighting this evil. Human trafficking happens in
the United States, and the public has a significant impact on stopping it. Our everyday "super"
skill to fight this crime is observation and intuitive red flags. This type of information made
to the National Human Trafficking Hotline at 1-888-373-7888 can be one phone call that can save
an innocent life.

city, state, country, and world.
