Watch this recorded roundtable discussion to learn about the history of anti-human trafficking work in the Portland metro area and where it is today. The lockdowns and wildfires put people who were already vulnerable in even more dangerous situations, including those exploited in the commercial sex industry. Now more than ever, it is so important that we come alongside survivors with advocacy and support so that they can get the safety and healing they need. Be a part of this important and timely conversation, and stand with survivors on their journey toward healing.
Our mission is to offer support for survivors of commercial sexual exploitation and sex-trafficking navigating the criminal and social justice systems in the mid-Willamette Valley, Oregon. We offer in-person support for survivors, specialized training for professionals and community members, and advocacy during law enforcement interviews. We believe that public education increases awareness, resulting in increased victim identification and better intervention outcomes. We are committed to collaboration with law enforcement and social services providers, believing collaboration is the most effective method to achieving criminal and social justice.
