About

Our Mission

To end human trafficking through preventing exploitation, educating the community, and empowering survivors.

Our Vision

We fight so that all may live free.

We believe that no human life should be for sale. Children, teens, and adults of all genders are exploited for sex and labor in our city every day. We exist to change that.

Preventing Exploitation

To fully end human trafficking, we must both support survivors and prevent people from ever being abused. By learning how to recognize the signs of trafficking, teens know how to stay safe and avoid exploitation. Informed kids are less likely to succumb to traffickers’ tactics.

Educating the Community

Education prepares the community. Through educational trainings, we prepare professionals, first responders, and community members to recognize and address human trafficking situations. Institutions become qualified to aid victims and survivors with a trauma-informed approach. Through our podcast, community members learn how to break down the systems that enable trafficking to flourish.

Empowering Survivors

Outreach prevents exploitation and empowers victims and survivors. Through case management, support groups, and direct outreach, we bridge the gap between service providers and those who need them. We interact with overlooked people to identify exploitation and empower them with appropriate resources for restoration.

Human trafficking is a violation of basic human rights and should be addressed as such. Together, we must restore that basic human right to every trafficked person—freedom.
