Action 13:
Learn about domestic servitude in your area

Launched November 2



Domestic servitude is a form of human trafficking which is difficult to detect because it takes place in private residences. As a result, domestic workers are generally more vulnerable to abuse and exploitation. Most cases are discovered by neighbors who notice that "something was not right."


  • Learn about cases of domestic servitude in your city, state or country. What happens to the victims? The traffickers?
  • Get to know the signs. If you think you see suspicious behavior, know where to call.
  • Write an article for your local paper on domestic servitude.
