A bill introduced by U.S. Sen. Maggie Hassan, D-New Hampshire, would require U.S. ports of entry to provide resources to victims of human trafficking. [It} would require that the hotline, 888-373-7888, be displayed in airports, rail stations and bus depots. The number would also be required to be displayed in restrooms of every plane, bus and train.
According to the New Hampshire Coalition Against Domestic and Sexual Violence, from 2017 to 2021, victim advocates assisted more than 370 human trafficking victims. Ages of the victims ranged from 6 to 60.
"And unfortunately, we see both labor and sex trafficking across the state," said Pamela Keilig, of the Coalition.
"[The hotline is] a critical tool for victims and community members who can help intervene in cases where human trafficking may be occurring," Keilig said.
