Descriptions: In recognition of the growing problem of human trafficking, both locally and statewide, Strive2Free was formed by a group of concerned professionals to raise awareness of human trafficking, provide assistance to survivors of human trafficking, and support efforts to stop human trafficking. Human trafficking is a form of modern-day slavery. Through the use of force, fraud, or coercion, victims are forced in labor and/or sex trafficking. Victims include women, men, and children of all backgrounds. And these victims are right here in our community, as California is a top destination state for traffickers of all victims, and Sacramento remains one of the top cities targeted by the FBI for the trafficking of children. Visit the Human Trafficking Page for more details. We want to use our influence and affluence to effect change in the world, and stop this horror now. Slavery was abolished once long ago; it is our goal to see it abolished again in our life times so that our children will not live in a world where men, women and children are bought and sold like chattel. By working together, using the resources and influence we have each been given, we believe it is possible to make a difference, one project at a time.
