To Start a Movement we are:
Promoting and distributing Live Free bracelets. The bracelets attract attention and promote dialogs about human trafficking. Their unique orange design and size make an immediate statement. As the numbers grow, the message is sent that people will not ignore the exploitation of human beings.
To Support Victims we are:
Allocating the net proceeds from Live Free bracelet donations to law enforcement and non-profit agencies that are the front-line responders in the war against human traffickers. These agencies rescue victims from their abusers and provide a variety of services to assist victims in escaping human exploitation including temporary shelter and clothing, reunification with families, relocation to home states or countries and medical treatment.
The result — breaking chains of human bondage so the victims can “Live Free.”
Donations are funding programs and agencies that aid victims of trafficking. With each $10 donation comes a chain bracelet to wear to raise awareness. Initially, the events are targeting Southern Nevada and later will expand nationally and internationally.
