This is the beginning of something new for us. We are here today because for the last 10 years, our supporters and team have encountered the darkness of modern-day slavery and decided to respond with hard work, generosity, and relentless hope.
Human trafficking is a crime that attempts to put a price on what is priceless. For millions of people on our planet, it threatens identity, wars against intrinsic value, and destroys futures. Human trafficking must be eradicated. Because when we fight for the freedom of others, we fight for all of us. We fight for the world we want to see.
In the pages that follow, you’ll find real stories of hope, victory, and restoration that happened in 2018. A new smile for a child in Cambodia, office doors swinging open in Spain, independence for a young girl in America, and a life-saving message of awareness carried in 77 airports and 16 seaports across Mexico...

The Restore Strategy is about the possibility of a changed story. We walk alongside survivors to see that possibility become a reality. Our goal for every survivor is complete restoration and to feel a sense of value and acceptance.
“Some of these survivors have been through the most horrific of trauma that’s unspeakable and even unthinkable. When survivors come into our care, they’re often in this place of brokenness, and they need the highest quality of trauma-informed care and rehabilitation. For us, this is really the heartbeat of A21 Aftercare—to come alongside and assist them in their restoration journey—to see them develop a sense of value again, get back on their feet, find health, and ultimately experience independence and freedom from
