Close to Home

It was just over a year ago that a sex trafficking bust took place not even fifteen minutes from my house. This isn’t the first time it has happened either. Within 2 miles of where I work there have been multiple busts.

How many of these places do we drive by on a typical day? Do you see them?

The trafficking is much closer to home than you may realize.

This is not something that only happens in foreign countries. There are many enslaved living in your own zip code!

The infographic below will show you just how prominent Human Trafficking is in the United States.

    It is stunning to think of things like this going on in our own back yard, but sadly it is so true. They are working hard on that right now in AZ because of the upcoming big football events. People try to say that there is no draw for trafficking during these but we are on our knees for those who are in harm’s way and for those who are trying to help. Thanks for shining another light on this Brittany.

    • Isn’t it?!

      I was in Phoenix last year working with the rescue project for the victims of human trafficking and I plan on being there next year during the week of the Super Bowl for the Prayer Bowl. Looking forward to it.

      The fight begins on our knees! Thank you for what you do to help!
