Child Rescue is a nonprofit organization dedicated to the abolishement of child sex trafficking in America. In our short history, we've worked hard to expose various communities to the realities of the child sex industry in North America and more importantly, the hope in seeing a future where it is abolished. Several notable accomplishments/events include:
· An international training held in Salt Lake City, where over 200 police officers, FBI Agents, and other law enforcement professionals, as well as an additional 85 professionals in related fields like probation, learned from expert investigators and actual survivors how to detect signs of human trafficking and sexual exploitation and create strategies for reducing occurrences in their own communities.
· The commissioning of a first-of-its-kind national public opinion research study to assess the public’s awareness levels and general understanding of the issue area, presenting SEC as an issue in which there is little prior knowledge or awareness amongst the general public.
· A benefit festival in Salt Lake City where Child Rescue harnessed the power of art and entertainment to reach over 4,000 teenagers and attendees in one day – raising the level of awareness and prevention around the issue of the sexual exploitation of children by presenting speakers in between the 20 bands, including the Attorney General, Mayor, LAPD and an SEC survivor. Watch video footage from the event by clicking on the video to the left.
· A yearlong, youth-run awareness campaign at West Jordan High School in Salt Lake City, which included entrepreneurial opportunities where teens invented their own business propositions, including recording and selling their own music in order to raise money for further awareness of this crime.
In 2012, Child Rescue launched a new campaign titled “Backyard Broadcast.” The goal is to empower youth to broadcast the message that the sexual exploitation of children is not just taking place far from our borders, but in our own backyards.
Backyard Broadcast is leveraging ideas and imagery from the underground resistance movements that played such an impactful role in World War II. Perpetrators of terrible crimes against children have been getting away with lenient punishments for far too long. A new strategy and mentality is needed to defeat the child sex trafficking industry – Backyard Broadcast is ready to lead the masses.
