Children are being trafficked.


Only in recent history have humans agreed that women should vote; that one water fountain is enough; and that we shouldn’t smoke on planes or throw garbage out our car windows. When people took action, and mindsets shifted, we leveled up. We need to do the same thing when it comes to ending child trafficking. Collectively, we need to mature in our mindsets, and we need to take action until our world agrees that this needs to change. 

What are some common vulnerabilities? Who are traffickers? Knowledge is power!

Whether it’s ‎$5 or $500, give what you can. Being there for children really matters.

Traffickers often recruit and sell online. Parents & youth need to know how to be safe.

Stand with us for a world where children are safe and free. Pray and involve your congregation.

Start a workout, join a century ride, or host a 5K – all while funding our work!

Raising Children Alongside Technology

Within the greater movement, we’ve witnessed how powerful it is for small groups of people to come together to learn, brainstorm, and raise awareness in their neighborhoods. Love146 Volunteer Teams are local groups of people passionate about seeing child trafficking end.

Equip those at hotels & truck stops to spot and report child trafficking

How do we end child trafficking and exploitation in our cities? We empower our communities to know what it looks like and what to do about it. By equipping those who may cross paths with victims of trafficking (hotels, motels, and truck stops), we create opportunities for intervention and prevention. If you’re an established Volunteer Team, shoot an email to action@love146.org and we’ll give you all the supplies, including a list of locations already visited in your area.
