Want to fight trafficking, but don’t know where to start?
Let us help you!
Getting educated is a great place to start. There are tons of misconceptions about the nature of sex trafficking, many of which minimize the need for advocacy and practical help for the victims. On top of that, sex trafficking largely goes unnoticed, particularly in the US. The reality is there are literally thousands of confirmed sex trafficking cases in the US every year, and these are only those confirmed by sex trafficking hotline statistics. Recognizing and acknowledging this reality, then seeing it from the perspective of the victims is an important first step in becoming an advocate. As our own awareness of the situation and acquaintance with the victims continues to grow, so too our desire to fight for them.

Serve with Route One
Route One started with three individuals who, like you, had a desire to see change, but didn’t exactly know where to start. We’ve come a long way since then, having grown and improved a lot along the way, but what mattered most was that we started somewhere. Now we extend to you a few tried and true starting points that we can guarantee will have a positive impact on victims of sex trafficking.
We absolutely need your help! There is a wide range of opportunities to volunteer at Route One and no shortage of need in any area! Join us in this fight! Sign up to volunteer by filling out this short form.
