Human trafficking is NOT OK. In 2011, 3Strands Global Foundation began providing human trafficking awareness programs to high schools, colleges, corporations, community and faith-based organizations across the U.S. to increase awareness and support prevention efforts. In 2015, 3Strands Global Foundation, Frederick Douglass Family Initiatives, Love Never Fails, the California Department of Education, the Office of the Attorney General, TipNow and the Institute for Social Research joined together in the fight against human trafficking to create PROTECT, PRevention Organization To Educate Children on Trafficking.

The joint mission of PROTECT is to increase our youth’s protective factors and reduce their vulnerability by identifying and preventing human trafficking using a standardized, trauma-informed teacher training, education curriculum and systematic delivery methodology.

Planning Your School Awareness Event

3Strands Global Foundation will assist a student body team, along with faculty members, to organize and host an event to bring awareness to students regarding human trafficking. Awareness events are typically hosted after school on a Friday, or all day Saturday.

Community Education Program

3Strands Global Foundation educates adults through community groups, clubs, public events and professional contexts. Human trafficking awareness among adults is critical as those who participate in our training become equipped to identify, report, and intervene on behalf of men, women, and children who are potential victims of human trafficking.



It's NOT OK. You can DO SOMETHING today to combat human trafficking.
