Mission Statement

3Strands Global Foundation mobilizes communities to combat human trafficking through prevention education and reintegration programs.

Description

On May 25, 2010, a group of world-shakers founded the Break Free Run in response to a tragic event. One evening, a young girl was taken from a shopping center parking lot and trafficked for eight days. Her family and friends immediately took action. Contacting local and state authorities, they worked tirelessly to recover this young girl from what would be a lifetime of pain.

Some months later, Ashlie asked her, "Where could we have been to prevent this from happening?" She responded with, "In school. If I had learned what human trafficking was and the tactics that traffickers use, I would have known how to protect myself." This would later spark the creation of the PROTECT prevention education program, which has gone on to educate over 35,000 students.

‚ÄčOver years of working in this field, the 3SGF team recognized that there need to be more resources available to survivors and those at-risk in order to empower and reintegrate them. With this in mind, 3SGF launched the Employ + Empower Reintegration program. Since 2016, 3SGF has facilitated the employment of 80 survivors and at-risk youth in the Sacramento Region.
