This exact week 20 years ago I stood in a brothel with undercover investigators, looking through a glass wall where there were young girls wearing red dresses. Each girl had a number pinned to her dress that corresponded to menus. The children sat motionless, watching cartoons on a crackling TV… except one girl. She was staring at us with a piercing gaze.
Her number was 146.
We thought we were going to see the issue of human trafficking that night. Instead, we saw a person.
After that night, we began this journey, not fully knowing what was ahead. But as we told this story, people of all different backgrounds and perspectives came together around the shared value that no child should be trafficked. We started reaching children with programs to prevent child trafficking and care for survivors. And people, including you, came alongside us and did whatever they could do to help.
Two decades later, your support is still changing lives.
By donating to Love146, you are joining courageous young survivors in the fight to end trafficking. They teach us that it takes love. Love opens our eyes. Love gives us the courage to pursue justice.
