Our Mission

Vision: To end human trafficking, thereby reducing suffering and making our community safer.


The mission of the Human Trafficking Task Force of Southern Colorado is to build a collaboration of organizations and individuals to reduce human suffering caused by human trafficking, through advocacy, awareness, rehabilitation, and services for survivors.

TASK FORCE IS ON THE RUN! MAY 3, AMERICA THE BEAUTIFUL PARK, SEE LINKS BELOW!!
We are so excited to announce we've been accepted as a participating organization for the Bringing Hope Run on May 3rd! This is going to be a FUN and AFFORDABLE event for the whole family with a bouncy house, food vendors, and races for all levels. Even better? Money raised will benefit us, as well as 8 other local organizations who are committed to FREEDOM locally and globally. Check out the website for all the details: www.bringinghoperun.com

Don't forget to sign up to participate in the Bringing Hope Run! If we get the most registrants among all the races (5k/10k/fun run), we'll have an additional $500 donated to us! May 3, and only $5-$25 to participate, depending on which race you choose. www.bringinghoperun.com

We love that we get to partner with other awesome organizations in town for the Bringing Hope Run. Yobel International has been working hard to organize the race this year, in addition to writing business curriculum to bring to impoverished nations. With the knowledge from this training they can start their own businesses, ending cycles of poverty in their families and communities. Yobelinternational.org

Next meeting: Tuesday, May 13, 2014


Our May speaker will be Cadet Fourth Class Caroline Cotton of the United States Air Force Academy.

Cadet Cotton worked in her hometown of Phoenix, Arizona to promote a Safe Harbor Law.

She has spoken with multiple Congressmen and elected officials as well as a staff member to Governor Jan Brewer and a lobbyist about passing a Safe Harbor Law.

Cadet Cotton has spoken with her high school principal as a senior at her high school about the possibility of implementing trafficking awareness curriculum into the health classes. She learned from her brother (a current freshmen) over the last week that a program has been implemented in which students are learning about this issue, so that is a success! It seems that her high school principal took the idea and ran with it!

She attended a McCain Institute Anti-Trafficking Conference to gain information and collaborate on different programs and ways to stop human trafficking.

Cadet Cotton is currently in the process of forming an anti-trafficking club here at USAFA in which she and cadets Kaitlyn Sanborn and Steven Brandt will show anti-trafficking documentaries to the cadet wing and undertake projects to gain supplies for recently rescued victims.
                    Our meetings are open to organizations and individuals
                    who are interested in stopping Modern Day Slavery,
                    especially in our community.
                    We are a 501 C 3 organization as recognized by the IRS.
