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.
Traffick911 exists to free youth from sex trafficking with a three-prong strategy of prevention, identification and empowerment. They have identified and/or assisted 694 (and counting) victims and their work - in close partnership with law enforcement - has led to multiple state and federal felony arrests and convictions. We also have a youth prevention program called Traps, which teaches youth how to #BeSmartStayFree from traffickers by understanding their tricks, traps and lures.
Stonebridge UMC partners with Traffick911 for educational and fundraising opportunities throughout the year.
