We are dedicated to preventing human trafficking and ending slavery

Not For Sale. One Step At A Time is an active organization working together with local authorities, community partners and agencies, schools and universities, and people like you to disrupt the demand in Stark County, across our state, and around the world – forever.

Our mission is to provide information that will empower you to take action

We empower and inspire action by educating and raising awareness about human trafficking. Some of the most important things to understand about sex trafficking and labor trafficking include: what are the signs that someone is being trafficked; who the traffickers are and how they target victims; who the victims are; and how parents can help protect their children. The more people who are informed of recognizing the signs of and knowing what to do if human trafficking is suspected could save a life.

Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world.
—Margaret Mead

What we are doing to help end the demand

We are educating our community and the surrounding areas on the realities of human trafficking happening locally, domestically, and internationally. We shine a light on human trafficking through our annual Community Freedom Summit and One-Mile Freedom Walk. We raise awareness through media and social networks and educational presentations in schools, on campuses, and with corporate businesses.

Raising a banner for freedom

We believe that by raising a banner for freedom through empowering with knowledge and providing a call to action, TOGETHER we can make a difference one life at a time and help end the demand – forever.

We believe if we unite together, there is hope to end this tragedy.

Raising Awareness and Educational Presentations

We are passionate about using our voice to speak for those who have been silenced by the tragedy of human trafficking. Through promoting awareness and providing education, we believe we can all rally together as a mighty force to end slavery.

Please contact us for scheduling a speaking engagement with your school, business, community event, or church.

Your call could save a life.
