Our mission is to strategically combat human trafficking through educational initiatives and serve sex trafficked women through a continuum of restorative care.
In 2017, community members from the greater Harrisburg area gathered for an anti-human trafficking awareness event and were compelled to address modern day slavery in their communities. They learned that since 2007, thousands of victims of human trafficking had been identified in Pennsylvania, yet there was sparse education and awareness and few resources for survivors.
After the event, a group of ordinary people-students, parents, business leaders, pastors, teachers, and health care workers-came together and asked themselves: what more can we do? How can we prevent human trafficking, address it alongside lawmakers and law enforcement, and serve survivors who often lack resources after being rescued?
These questions led to the formation of Greenlight Operation. In 2018, they set out to raise awareness about human trafficking, make connections in the anti-human trafficking community, and raise funds to open a long-term restoration home for trafficking survivors.
We do not just want to be known for what we are against, but what we are for: freedom, collaboration, and restoration. To fight against human trafficking, yes, but also to promote a culture that values the dignity of human life and loves our neighbor more than ourselves.
While we continue gathering support and resources to launch a thriving restoration home program, we remain committed to addressing human trafficking in our communities through ordinary people doing extraordinary work.
