People trained in person on sex trafficking prevention, victim identification, and tip reporting.
- Partnered with the American Hotel & Lodging Association, who has over 27K hotel properties, to disrupt trafficking in hotels across America through the "No Room for Trafficking" campaign.
Established 70 collaborative partnerships and protocols with law enforcement, non-profits, corporations, and communities to disrupt trafficking, identify victims, and place survivors.
This is not an issue that is going to be solved by one person, one organization, or one institution, but rather it is about communities uniting to stand in the gap for the vulnerable, people choosing to see the issue, and lives being transformed.
Thank you for being part of bringing HOPE, FREEDOM,
and a FUTURE to our participants in 2019.
