Heartland Alliance Stands Against Human Trafficking.

 

HUMAN TRAFFICKING IS EXPLOITATION.


A VICTIM OF HUMAN TRAFFICKING
is someone who was compelled through force, fraud and/or coercion to perform acts of labor,  including commercial sex.

AT HEARTLAND ALLIANCE, we believe that every person is entitled to safety, and the opportunity to reach their full potential. Building on decades of experience, our goal is to meet the unique needs of vulnerable populations, including survivors of human trafficking. This includes helping them secure their rights, and providing services to meet their immediate needs and to promote long-term self-sufficiency.
