ADVOCACY & AWARENESS

Raising Our Voice For The Voiceless

Advocating to End Sex Trafficking

Our Advocacy & Awareness Program unites with legislators, leaders and attorneys to bring justice to these precious young lives. It serves as a launchpad for individuals who want to learn more about progress in the fight to end sex trafficking in our country.

 

One major aspect of this Program is  "Advocacy". We present the facts about this issue through a legislative lens on a national level. We share our knowledge to equip and empower you on the latest news in this movement, tools to help combat sex trafficking and how to take action from channeling the power of grassroots determination to nationally changing laws.

We are committed to freedom and justice. We are a voice for those who are not yet free to speak up for themselves... yet.
