2021 Breaking the Chains of Human Trafficking

Virtual Gala

Hello friends! While we cannot all be together in person again for our 2021 Breaking the Chains of Human Trafficking Annual Gala, we are excited to share this short video spotlighting our Project Red Cord community street outreach efforts and the services/programs being offered at Renee Jones Empowerment Center.

Our mission is to empower these individuals to advocate for themselves and to improve their quality of life through personal, social, and professional development. The Center is devoted to preventing human trafficking and sexual exploitation by actively engaging the community in anti-trafficking efforts and educating service professionals, law enforcement, educators, students, parents, and the community on the realities of this growing crime.
