Awareness and Volunteer Training

Human Trafficking, a modern day slavery epidemic, still exists in every state in America. According to the U.S. Department of Defense, human trafficking is the fastest growing crime in the world. We invite you to recognize the advances taking place in the Modern-Day Abolitionist movement, become aware of the current challenges in serving trafficked persons, understand what human trafficking looks like in Kansas City and abroad, and join us in bringing freedom to all.

“You may choose to look the other way but you can never say again that you did not know.” ― William Wilberforce a leader in the abolition of the slave trade in the British Empire
