Chains Interrupted works to prevent human trafficking. Members say the key to doing that is for people to always be aware of their surroundings.

Chains Interrupted offers a training for hotels and motels in the area.

Volunteers want staff at hotels and motels along I-380 to be aware of suspicious behavior and know when to call police.

On January 17th, Governor Reynolds will declare the month "Slavery and Anti Human Trafficking Prevention and Awareness Month." She will also present an "Outstanding Anti Human Trafficking Service Award" to the president of Chains Interrupted.
