WHAT’S NEXT IN THE FIGHT AGAINST HUMAN TRAFFICKING?
We are developing a team that will work collectively to fight this global atrocity.
Being an advocate means you are willing to use your platform, influence, and voice for the justice of others—will you join us?
WHO ARE ADVOCATE TEAM MEMBERS?
The ones bringing awareness to human trafficking by raising their voices in their own communities. Through fundraising and networking, this team’s primary role in the battle is to speak up for those who cannot speak for themselves.
For the last decade, the number of individuals trapped in the vicious industry of human trafficking has increased with every passing year.* It is estimated that as many as 40 million people in the world today are being bought and sold as modern-day slaves. Women, children, and even men are being captured, exploited, and abused on a daily basis in every country around the world.
The statistics are staggering. Human trafficking generates $150 billion worldwide, with the United States leading all other countries demand. Roughly 70% of victims worldwide are female. 25% are children. They have been identified in every single US state, and more than ever are reaching out for help.**
These numbers are just a few of the overwhelming many, and they are only rising. But hope is not lost. Now is the time that the fight for the lives of these 40 million is now a rising concern for organizations, churches, and leaders across the globe. The Tim Tebow Foundation is committed to advancing this fight for the lives of those who have been trafficked or who are at risk of becoming victims. Though the Foundation has served in this space for years, we are burdened to go deeper.
