A Community Plan
Over the past two decades, the issue of sex trafficking has been brought increasingly into the light. In 2000, when the “Trafficking Victims Protection Act” (TVPA) was first passed, there were only a handful of organizations combating sex trafficking in the United States. Today there are over 2,500, with new anti-sex trafficking organizations being formed every year. This has brought about a lot of positive outcomes including: victim identification and rescue, an increase in aftercare services, victim prevention education, as well as stronger criminal justice efforts to arrest and prosecute traffickers.
Despite this greater awareness and activity, the crime of sex trafficking continues to increase in the United States and around the world. But why? Why have increased efforts to fight sex trafficking not resulted in diminishing the problem? More importantly, what can local communities do to turn the tide in their area and see a better return on their investment of time and resources?
The Until All Are Free Workshop offers a viable way forward for local communities to effectively combat and end sex trafficking.
At the Gateway to Freedom Foundation we educate local communities on how to effectively combat and end sex trafficking in their community. The good news is that it does not involve working harder or spending large sums of money, but working smarter. Through the Until All Are Free Workshop a multi-sector approach is offered that targets the root cause of sex trafficking. The premise is that no one person or organization can do everything, but everyone can do something. The workshop helps people and organizations identify what that something is. As a result, participants leave the workshop with a greater sense of hope and purpose in the fight against sex trafficking.
The workshop is perfect for local church events, as well as company/corporate trainings. Bring the Until All Are Free Workshop to your community group. Contact the Gateway to Freedom Foundation today to learn how. Email: firstname.lastname@example.org or Call: 717-426-9977
