Human Trafficking Awareness and Prevention

Human trafficking is the recruitment, harboring, transportation, provision, or obtaining of a person for a commercial sex act or labor services through force, fraud, or coercion. It is modern-day slavery. Most importantly, we want every man, woman, and child to know about slavery and how they can help to end the demand.


Our organization exists to bring awareness to this multi-billion dollar criminal industry through educational programs and awareness events.

We believe that prevention can happen through awareness, advocacy, and action. Our mission is to provide information that will empower you to take action and be a part of disrupting the demand.
