4. CHILD ABUSE PREVENTION AND INTERVENTION
Arizona Department of Child Safety A report of suspected child abuse, neglect, exploitation or abandonment is a responsible attempt to protect a child. Arizona law requires certain persons who suspect that a child has received non-accidental injury or has been neglected to report their concerns to DCS or local law enforcement (ARS §13-3620.A). YOU may be a child’s only advocate at the time you report the possibility of abuse or neglect. Children often tell a person with whom they feel safe about abuse or neglect. If a child tells you of such experiences, act to protect that child by calling the toll free Arizona Child Abuse Hotline at 1-888-SOS-CHILD (1-888-767-2445). To learn more see: https://dcs.az.gov/services/suspect-abuse-report-it-now

Red Light Rebellion (Prevention): 602-734-5635, firstname.lastname@example.org, http://redlightrebellion.org/
Our mission is to educate and empower students to fight the injustice of child sex slavery. Through our Awareness and Action Campaigns we seek to educate students to prevent them from coercion into the sex trade, and empower them to build an army of young people fighting for other young people. To prevent sex trafficking we have to go beyond simply talking about exploitation; we must address the brokenness that makes us vulnerable to predators in the first place. Whether it is a broken family or fierce independence, when students recognize their personal vulnerabilities to predators they develop resiliency to manipulation surrounding those parts of their stories. And when we can introduce Jesus to their stories, resilience naturally follows.
