Traffick911 is a team of passionate people driven to free youth from sex trafficking.
HOPE : Hope is the currency of a brighter future. We believe everyone was created for a purpose-filled life and hope is fully known through Jesus Christ.*
INGENUITY : We are constantly sharpening our edge – ever learning to craft inventive strategies for change.
COMPASSION : We see and care deeply about the suffering of others. We confront the dark realities so that more can know truth and journey toward a wholehearted life.
INTEGRITY : We stand by our word. We seek to be authentic stewards of the lives, stories and resources with which we are entrusted and to live morally upright and honorable lives.
COLLABORATIVE : We recognize we are but a slice of the larger picture. We value wisdom and collaboration from survivors, law enforcement, legislators, NGOs, and other subject matter experts.
JUSTICE : Justice for the oppressed is our passion and often opens the door to personal justification. We seek to empower survivors to use their voice so that our judicial system can prosecute more perpetrators.
EXCELLENCE : Excellence breeds credibility and dependability. We commit to thoroughness, preparedness, quality and consistency in everything we do.
*We serve U.S. children regardless of religion, ethnicity, race, gender or sexual orientation. We believe the scope of this crime is too large for one organization to tackle alone; it takes all of us collaborating together, working across political, religious and social boundaries.
Traffick911 began in 2009 by a local abolitionist who learned about this crime and decided that she couldn't stay silent. After months of research and connecting to networks across the nation, she pioneered training youth and first responders across Texas and built an enormous base of highly-trained volunteers, who have been instrumental in Traffick911's long-term success.
In 2011, an opportunity to present at a juvenile detention center gave insight on what became a highly effective venue for reaching high-risk youth. Since then, Traffick911's work in partnering with juvenile detention centers has gained national exposure and hundreds of victims have been identified sitting in these jail cells. Outreach to high-risk youth has become a niche and passion of Traffick911.
Traffick911 was named the 2013 Outstanding Organization of the Year by the Fort Worth Commission for Women with commendations by the Fort Worth City Council, mayor and a State Senator. We have also been recognized by Homeland Security Investigations as a most-valued partner in this battle to save our American children from sex trafficking.
