M3 Launches Human Trafficking Awareness Website

These numbers come from the US State Dept. and the United Nations. The staggering thing is that every 30 seconds another child is trafficked on the globe and Oklahoma is at the heart of the human trafficking issue in the United States; because of the highway systems that run through here. If Oklahoma’s highways are at the heart of the problem-the heart of the full-time abolitionist is at the heart of the solution and the organizations that have been founded here make Tulsa a “City on a Hill” for global solutions and US cities everywhere.

Mr. Elam visited several of the Dept. of Justice Task Force cities to learn from them what our federal government is doing to combat this problem here in America… and then implemented that plan here in Oklahoma July 2008, forming the Coalition O.A.T.H. – Oklahomans Against Trafficking Humans.  In the first year of operation O.A.T.H. has partnered with over 80 federal, state and local organizations to service victims of trafficking found here in Oklahoma.  In February of 2009 O.A.T.H. was asked to become the state-wide coalition to bring awareness, education and training about the subject of human trafficking and to assist in networking law enforcement agencies, service providers, NGO’s, business leaders and the faith community in providing care for trafficking victims.

Updated nearly daily, this website will showcase what organizations, NGO’s, Non-profits and citizen’s groups are doing to end human trafficking in Oklahoma.

Some of these groups are more focused on creating public awareness and education, while others are focused rescuing victims and getting them restored.
