Freedom is Just a Call or Text Away

New Mexico Hotline

Victims of Human Trafficking are in need of hope and long term care to prevent their re-victimization by providing comprehensive programs (medical, psychological, educational, housing and material assistance) with full respect and regard for their human rights. We can do this by collaborating, educating and gathering resources.

  • We have to end the ignorance, stigmatization, and prejudice victims endure as they emerge from the abysmal world of Human Trafficking.
  • We can combat Human Trafficking by looking closer into places it hides: massage parlors, the internet, gangs, motels, casinos, drug and weapon rings, and sometimes places you wouldn’t expect, such as within families.
  • We must stand up as a world community against those who still engage in the criminal act of buying and selling human beings.

National Human Trafficking Hotline

Human trafficking is a situation in which an individual is compelled to work or engage in commercial sex through the use of force, fraud or coercion. If the individual is under the age of 18 and engaging in commercial sex they are experiencing regardless if force, fraud, or coercion is also taking place.

If you believe you may have information about a trafficking situation:

National Center for Missing and Exploited Children

NCMEC’s CyberTipline is the nation’s centralized reporting system for the online exploitation of children. The public and electronic service providers can make reports of suspected online enticement of children for sexual acts, extra-familial child sexual molestation, child pornography, child sex tourism, child sex trafficking, unsolicited obscene materials sent to a child, misleading domain names, and misleading words or digital images on the internet.

NCMEC staff review each tip and work to find a potential location for the incident reported so that it may be made available to the appropriate law-enforcement agency for possible investigation. They also use the information from our CyberTipline reports to help shape prevention and safety messages.

Report missing children or child pornography to the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children (NCMEC) at 1-800-THE-LOST (843-5678) or through their Cybertipline 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
