January is national human trafficking prevention month. If you have been following TFC Global the past few years you know that combatting sex trafficking has become an increasing priority for our organization, without sacrificing our core mission to evangelize, educate and equip the professional driver community. TFC Global launched the Gateway to Freedom Foundation three years ago with the vision to put sex trafficking out of business by reducing and ending the demand for consumer sex. Since then GTFF has become a leader in demand reduction, and the results are starting to show.

Last year GTFF helped 13 men break free from consumer sexual beliefs and behaviors through our GTF 3-day intensive in PA, as well as our mentoring support group. We also launched a new community awareness workshop called, Until All Are Free, in which we educated key stakeholders in Lancaster County, Berks County, and Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania, thus equipping those communities to effectively combat the demand.

We are looking forward to building off of the momentum created last year. This year we are going to be launching free online resources to equip community stakeholders to reduce the demand in their area. By equipping key stakeholders we are able to impact demand reduction exponentially. We are also looking forward to reaching more local churches, families, and blue-collar companies through our Play to End the Game awareness event. Keep an eye out next month for more details about the event.

This month, in recognition of human trafficking prevention, GTFF will be sharing a community presentation about our work and what is being done to combat sex trafficking in Lancaster County, PA. The event is hosted by Men of Iron at the Supply venue (280 S Oak St, Manheim, PA 17545) on Thursday, January 18th at 6:30pm. If you live in Lancaster County or the surrounding area you don’t want to miss this presentation. Email gateway@tfcglobal.org for more information and to register.
