Know Human Trafficking

Human Trafficking is code for slavery — involuntary servitude, debt bondage, or peonage. Thousands of Northeast Ohio children, women, and men are enslaved to commercial sex or forced labor annually.

The Renee Jones Empowerment Center is the only Northeast Ohio agency committed to providing life coaching and aftercare services to those with the courage to break the human trafficking system.
