Human trafficking prevention
We strive to be a part of every community we serve, and to have a positive impact on road safety.
Working alongside our partners in government and law enforcement, Lyft is committed to the prevention of human trafficking. As a driver, you can do your part to help make a difference.
As defined by the DHS Blue Campaign, human trafficking involves the use of force, fraud, or coercion to obtain some type of labor or commercial sex act. A victim can be a person of any age, race, gender, or nationality. Language barriers, fear of their traffickers, and/or fear of law enforcement often prevent victims from coming forward.
How can I help?
Stay alert. Keep an eye out for common signs displayed by victims of trafficking, as provided by the National Human Trafficking Hotline. Victims of human trafficking may exhibit one or more of the following behaviors:
Appearing fearful, depressed, submissive, tense, or paranoid,
Seeming unusually fearful or anxious after the mention of law enforcement,
Avoiding eye contact,
Claiming that they’re “just visiting” or being unable to identify where they are staying,
Being unaware of the time of day, and/or
Lacking of knowledge of their whereabouts or not knowing what city they are in.
Do not at any time attempt to confront a suspected trafficker directly or alert a victim to your suspicions. It is up to law enforcement to investigate suspected cases of human trafficking.
To report a suspected human trafficking incident, please contact 911.
