STOP Trafficking Newsletter – January 2024 edition


The STOP Trafficking newsletter is a monthly information resource published by the Alliance to End Human Trafficking. This month’s newsletter focuses on the new types of threat posed to children and young people via social media platforms. Predatory individuals and organizations use these platforms to target vulnerable young people for sexual exploitation, using catfishing and other grooming tactics to obtain access. This newsletter discusses the latest developments of this criminal activity and, as always, addresses the problem with solutions in the form of advocacy and action.
