Project Details

Public awareness is essential in abolishing this crime because of the hidden nature of the problem, and the shame of the victims. America is the top destination country for human trafficking in the world, in addition to having its own internal population of American-born victims.

Interfaith action on the issue of human trafficking can bring powerful results. The purpose of the Safe Haven Campaign is to move faith communities to act as catalysts of a broad-based public awareness campaign which will significantly contribute to prevention and abolishment of human trafficking in our neighborhoods.

Safe Haven’s primary education and awareness-raising tool is the “Safe Haven Small Group Study Series” used by faith communities, nonprofit leaders, organizations, and neighborhood associations. The study series, comprised of 4 sessions, comes with a DVD, and Small Group Workbook that helps inform, facilitate and stimulate discussion. It also contains various “homework” projects and other action steps that groups can take. What makes the “Safe Haven Small Group Study Series” immediately valuable to faith and community groups is that it’s self-driven and does not require an “expert” to teach or speak. Groups can take action independently to raise awareness and chose actions that fit their communities.

 

Approach: Safe Haven provides direction for all levels of engagement in the efforts to protect families, and abolish trafficking in our communities. Public awareness brings an environment of accountability, which is the foundation of prevention.

 

Through this national network of faith communities, public awareness will spread among concerned community members, an environment can be created to enable victims to have the courage to come forward.
