Mission Statement

In Our Backyard links arms across America in the fight against human trafficking through awareness, action, education, legislative advising and advocacy for survivors.

Description

In Our Backyard (IOB), a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, links arms across America in the fight against human trafficking through awareness, action, education, legislative advising and advocacy for survivors. IOB founder and executive director Nita Belles is an author, speaker and leading national expert in the anti-human trafficking movement. Her journey as a tireless crusader against human trafficking began in 2006 when she witnessed the cruelty of this atrocity and was compelled to take action. Belles founded the Central Oregon chapter of Oregonians Against Trafficking Humans (CO-OATH) in 2009, which has since integrated into IOB combining both local and national human trafficking efforts. IOB’s flagship programs, Freedom Stickers and Convenience Stores Against Trafficking (CSAT) provide critical public awareness and lifelines of hope for victims of human trafficking.
