Why We Fight

Fists in Solidarity

The issue often seems overwhelming.  But keep in mind, all these statistics represent people.  People who were made in the image of God, who have value outside of their situations.  They are more than victims.  They all have potential to be survivors who can make an impact in any endeavor they choose.  

They are why we fight!

 

  • There are 40+ million people enslaved in the world today. That’s 1 of out every 95 people.

Human trafficking worldwide is estimated to generate more than $150 billion annually.  That’s approximately the annual revenue of company #15 on the 2020 Fortune 500 list.

  • In 2020, 10,583 situations of human trafficking were reported to the U.S. National Human Trafficking Hotline involving 16,658 individual victims.

    • 10,836 of these were victims of sex trafficking

    • 137 of these situations were reported from Colorado

    • 31% of all cases where recruitment relationships were known showed victims were recruited by a family member or caregiver

And yet in these difficult times, we see the best of humanity: frontline heroes, men and women risking their lives and going above and beyond to provide essential support for human trafficking victims.

-- Ghada Waly, Executive Director, UN Office on Drugs and Crime


 

The word freedom holds so much beauty. It was like my eyes were open to something I had never seen before that moment.
