- Human trafficking is a form of modern-day slavery where people profit from the control and exploitation of others. As defined under U.S. federal law, victims of human trafficking include children involved in the sex trade, adults age 18 or over who are coerced or deceived into commercial sex acts, and anyone forced into different forms of "labor or services."
- There are over 27 million people in slavery across the world as a result of Human Trafficking
- The yearly profits from the Human Trafficking Industry total over $32 Billion
- 99% of victims never escape from Human Trafficking
The Rescue Project of Phoenix rescues trafficked victims off the street, providing shelter, protection, and rehabilitation in order to restore lives and rebuild hope in the fight against Human Trafficking. Now, YOU can help.
On January 15, 2012, over 30,000 runners will take to the streets of Phoenix for the PF Changs Arizona Marathon. Among them, will be a team of runners raising money and bringing awareness to the campaign to eradicate this form of modern-day slavery in our city.
This year YOU can make a difference. This year YOU can save a life. Please donate now.
