Love146 journeys alongside children impacted by trafficking today and prevents the trafficking of children tomorrow.
Love146 is a human rights organization working to end child trafficking and exploitation. We journey alongside children impacted by trafficking today and prevent the trafficking of children tomorrow.
In 2002, our co-founders went to learn more about the issue first-hand, in Southeast Asia. In the words of Love146 CEO, Rob Morris, “We stood in a brothel with undercover investigators, looking through glass at young girls. They wore matching 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. That moment changed something in me. It’s challenged me to not look away. To see the one instead of “the cause.” Today, we join courageous young survivors in the fight to end trafficking.”
Find out how who is being trafficked, how many people are being trafficked, and where. And hear about what trafficking is like from children in Love146’s Survivor Care.
Traffickers often recruit and sell online. This is more true than even since the pandemic has increased screen time for youth. This web-based guide keeps it simple.
This webinar is focused on recognizing red flags and helping youth find a safe adult. It will shed light tactics traffickers use to groom and recruit children, and discuss steps adults and caregivers can take to address the issue.
The mother of one child in Love146’s Survivor Care wrote us a note saying, “I sleep well now knowing you are now involved in her life. You have something others don’t. I knew it the minute you walked into my home.” There are caregivers out there who, because of your donations, know their child can receive the support they need after trafficking.
