If a girl suddenly comes up to you in public and acts like she knows you, consider going along with it. You may be saving a life.
I know this sounds like a dramatic ask, but I believe this is a great reminder and warning that this is a technique that trafficking victims will use to escape a dangerous or potentially fatal situation. Friends that I have that work for organizations that help girls escape human trafficking have advocated this type of reaction if you are approached. I know this can feel scary and you may be hesitant if confronted with this type of situation, I understand. But I’d want you to fathom if this was your daughter or niece, how would you want me to help?
