Newly Formed Tampa Bay Human Trafficking Task Force is Saving Lives

 

Collaboration is one of our core values at Selah Freedom. It is especially key in our Outreach Program, where our team works with federal and local law enforcement, the State Attorney's Office, judges, legislators and partnering nonprofits to save lives everyday. 

The recent arrest of the Sinful Six and rescue of five survivors would have not been possible without all of our partners and the newly formed Tampa Bay Human Trafficking Task Force. Special thanks to all of the men and woman who are working tirelessly to eradicate sex trafficking in our own backyard.
