How we fight

Prevention

In order to eradicate human trafficking – the demand for exploitation of human beings for profit, we believe we must educate young people about the lures of trafficking and invest in character and leadership development. The prevention curriculum exists to not only prevent trafficking from occurring, but also to create and equip students leaders to be a part of the solution, bringing lasting change for our communities and beyond.

How we fight

Education

The City of San Antonio Action Plan to Combat Human Trafficking proposes strategies that will better support organizations providing assistance to victims and helps to protect foreign nationals, including young female immigrants who arrive in San Antonio alone, from being subjected to illegitimate or unsafe work.

How we fight
