Christi also shared these links and resources:
Christi's website http://eyesupappalachia.org/ has lots of resources that are divided into interest groups - all focused on general audiences, not just the Appalachian area. If anyone would like to follow-up on familial trafficking, there are some great podcasts and information under that tab. https://www.eyesupappalachia.org/familialtrafficking 
Another resource -  “Be Safe, Know Safe, Stay Safe” campaign. You can access the social media posts at https://www.eyesupappalachia.org/safeperson . If anyone is interested in posting that on their social media that would be great! 
You can also see the Resource Guide that was referenced on that postcard at https://www.eyesupappalachia.org/resource-guide-on-safe-social-media-use . It is full of mostly national resources and tips for individuals in age appropriate ways. It is not limited to the Appalachian area. 
"Please feel free to share the above links . I had so many positive responses that I would love for them to know I truly appreciate their interest and concern for those that fall victim to human trafficking!"
