AUSTIN, Texas - The State of Texas says it will not tolerate human trafficking practices.
In an effort to prevent the crime, agencies and departments are working to educate the public about indicators of human trafficking. It's all part of Human Trafficking Prevention Month.
Anyone who sees something that could be suspicious can call the National Human Trafficking Hotline at 1-888-373-7888 or text the number 23-37-33.
