Every year, United Against Human Trafficking joins with Coalition members, hosting events to raise awareness and advocacy in the City of Houston.One of our first events was a partnership with a 2nd Cup and The Landing, to present our Human Trafficking on 101 on January 6. Over 50 people attended the event, eager to learn how to make a difference in their communities and raise awareness.
HTAM events will continue through the month, with this week’s screening of “I am Jane Doe.” This documentary film chronicles the legal battle between the victims of sex trafficking and Backpage.com – A legal battle that continues today, as several anti-trafficking organizations and survivor safe houses testify before Congress in support of the Stop Enabling Sex Traffickers Act (SESTA).
