Innocents at Risk hope to defeat the fastest growing criminal industry in the world by raising greater awareness for the 300,000 children each year that become victims of the sex trade.
Innocents at Risk was founded to combat human trafficking and child exploitation. They attempt to educate people about local and global human trafficking and are dedicated to ending child exploitation and trafficking everywhere.
Since 2004, Innocents at Risk has partnered with the Department of State, Department of Homeland Security, Department of Transportation, the Embassies, local law enforcement, and the NGO community in Washington in order to raise awareness. Then in 2009 they partnered with Cherie and her Foundation for Women in New York for an awareness event hosted by The Salvation Army’s “Initiative Against Sexual Trafficking”. STOP THE TRAFFIK by Steve Chalke was highlighted at the event. Cherie, a champion for human rights, authored a chapter in the book on the horrors of trafficking and its effect on women and children.
Innocents at Risk hope to defeat the fastest growing criminal industry in the world by raising greater awareness for the 300,000 children each year that become victims of the sex trade. They continue to educate flight attendants and the travel industry.
Partnering with The National Center for Missing and Exploited Children (NCMEC), Innocents at Risk will take the CASE Campaign (Campaign Against Sexual Exploitation) out into the community. They aim to engage government representatives, the corporate world, leaders in schools, the community and churches to work to prevent child exploitation and to help defeat the $32 billion criminal industry.
