Eastern North Carolina Stop Human Trafficking Now, desires to create a community that actively works towards abolishing Human Trafficking locally and globally.
Eastern North Carolina Stop Human Trafficking Now desires to create a community that understands the tragedy of Human Trafficking and seeks to be part of the solution.
We empower our community to reduce Human Trafficing by:
Educating citizens about the reality of Sex Trafficking and Labor Trafficking in Eastern North Carolina and around the world.
Expanding local markets for Fairly Traded items produced without coerced or exploitative labor practices.
Encouraging legislators, law enforcement, and the public to contribute to the fight to end Human Trafficking.
Collaborating with and supporting other local, national, and international anti-trafficking and victim-assistance efforts.
We believe that all aspects of human trafficking violate human dignity and must be eliminated.
We believe that every person has the right to choose a dignified means of supporting himself or herself. We believe that every child has the right to an education, so that he or she will be able to choose a dignified means of supporting himself or herself at adulthood.
We believe it is imperative to educate the public about human trafficking, reduce the demand for slave labor and sexual servitude, prosecute the perpetrators, and protect victims and potential victims.
We seek to uphold these rights by educating the public about human trafficking, by encouraging the purchase of Fair Trade Products, and by serving those victimized by powerlessness and poverty.
