the logoWho We Are

NC Stop Human Trafficking’s vision is a state free of human trafficking. It does this through creating communities actively working to abolish it. As an organization it educates community members, professionals and service providers on the red flags of human trafficking and how to report/respond. NC Stop Human Trafficking also understands that it takes an entire community of professionals, service providers and nonprofits to improve victim response and prevent human trafficking, which is why it works across the state to support rural coalition development. NC Stop Human Trafficking also advocates on a state and federal level for stronger anti-human trafficking legislation. As an organization, it supports the principles of fair trade. Fair trade is a human trafficking prevention and deterrent across the globe, which is why the organization works to introduce fair trade products into the local markets.

Our Story

Our Story

Since our beginning in 2010, educating our community about Human Trafficking has been our focus. We do this by speaking to church and civic groups, participating in community events, and training professional groups.

Help Us Fill the Funding Gap

Our programming has been in full operation since the pandemic hit, however, we have reached a funding shortfall due to cancelled events and fundraisers. 

As this nonprofit, along with so many organizations and individuals, grapple with the ramifications of this pandemic, we humbly ask you for help.  

Maybe next time. Take me to the website.
