I know what it’s like to have a call in your heart and a fire inside you to make a difference, but to not know how to get involved or where to start. The frequent, almost nagging feeling, that you must do something. Somehow, someway, you HAVE to do something.

But – Where to start? What to do? How to proceed with wisdom?

I FEEL you my friend.

When I first became compelled to get involved in the fight against human trafficking I had no idea what to do or where to start. I found one organization locally that was eager to educate me on depth of sexual exploitation and trafficking in our area, but they didn’t take volunteers. I was happy to try drum up some financial support for them, but that was not satisfying the urge to make a greater impact.

Unfortunately, their organization was dissolved within the year, but my urge to get involved did not. I kept searching for organizations to partner with, kept learning all that I could, kept requesting volunteer opportunities, kept telling people about my vision of change.

It wasn’t easy, there wasn’t much established formally or informally in our area. The average person had no idea about the issues, there was no public pressure for anyone to change anything.

Luckily, I along the way I met others who had a burden on their heart around this cause. Now, nearly a decade later you wouldn’t RECOGNIZE this community and change that it has underwent.

Multiple organizations and departments have been formed around the issue. Thousands and thousands of members in the local community have rallied to change laws, push progress forward, change stereotypes, and educate the overall community. National news worthy cases are being brought into the light. For the FIRST TIME in our state’s history, pimps/traffickers are being prosecuted on a regular basis, corruption is being brought into the light in unprecedented ways, and survivors are given a platform to speak out. Personally, I have had the opportunity to meet, mentor, and/or assist hundreds of survivors. It is staggering to think of all that has changed since our awkward days, sitting around in living rooms & cafes, wondering if anything was ever going to come of the fire inside us.
