Human trafficking is a $150 billion industry globally, with at least 100,000 people forced into sexual exploitation in the United States every year. There are an estimated 20 million victims held in slavery globally, and all 50 states in the U.S. as well as 167 countries have reported incidents of human trafficking. 3Strands Global Foundation has educated over 30,000 community members and middle school, high school, and college students about human trafficking, and from that experience has helped to create PROTECT, a statewide, standardized prevention education curriculum. 3Strands Global Foundation also reintegrates survivors of human trafficking by placing them in jobs in the Sacramento region. In addition to reintegrating over 30 survivors and at-risk youth locally, 3Strands Global Foundation purchases bracelets made by survivors from partner organizations around the world. These bracelets are sold domestically to ensure that the survivors can have a sustainable job. 3Strands Global Foundation also hosts 5K/10K Break Free Run events in the Sacramento are and the Bay Area to raise awareness and funds to combat human trafficking.
In 2017, 3Strands Global Foundation will seek individual donations, grants and collaborative private partners to support the organization's prevention education and reintegration initiatives.

'My mission is to engage our community to do something to combat human trafficking. This is an unthinkable crime that many are not aware of, or choose to look the other way. The average age of a child sold into sex trafficking is 15. To have such little value for human life baffles me on a daily basis. These children are precious and are being exploited in the most unthinkable ways. At 3Strands Global Foundation, we view prevention education and reintegration programs as critical to change. PREVENTION EDUCATION is a powerful tool in our fight against trafficking because every child, teen and young adult is vulnerable to this crime. REINTEGRATION is key for survivors of human trafficking to break the bonds of exploitation. We MOBILIZE communities through our continued engagement activities, offering individuals and organizations the opportunity to DO SOMETHING. Human trafficking is a rapidly growing global enterprise and it is NOT OK!'
