The United States, even the Rocky Mountain Region, isn’t immune to Human Trafficking. It’s happening within every state, and every city. The good news is, there are many organizations in The Rockies that are fighting for the freedom of these trafficked victims.
Trafficking in the US is a 60-100 Billion dollar industry. The Rocky Mountain region is a major consumer. Many are saying enough! But they do not know how to really make a difference. SAFE Rockies identifies the greatest funding needs to eradicate trafficking in our community, then mobilizes your generosity. SAFE is not another non-profit. Instead we strategically invest in collaborative organizations in the fight.
