Secretary Pate launches digital outreach to help survivors of human trafficking

DES MOINES – Iowa Secretary of State Paul Pate launched a new digital outreach effort this week to inform survivors of human trafficking and stalking about resources available to them. Two videos will run on Facebook and YouTube promoting Safe at Home throughout the month of January, which is Slavery and Human Trafficking Prevention Month.

Safe at Home is an address confidentiality program that provides survivors of sexual abuse, domestic violence, trafficking and stalking with a substitute address to use on all their records, making it harder for their abuser to find them. The Iowa Secretary of State’s Office administers Safe at Home.

“Trafficking and stalking are problems that continue to plague our society. We want survivors to know there are resources available to help them. Safe at Home is one of those,” Pate said.

There are approximately 600 participants in Safe at Home enrolled statewide. If you or someone you know is looking for a way out of an abusive situation, Safe at Home can help. VisitSafeatHome.Iowa.gov or call 515-725-7233 for more information.
