Together WE CAN! Full community partnership can stop child sex trafficking here. Evil happens when good people do nothing (because they don’t know what to do). Partner with SHIFT Freedom to educate families – schools – churches and become a part of the solution!
Nearly 4 years ago a group of high school students went on a humanitarian trip overseas. They saw child exploitation and child sex trafficking situations unfold in front of their eyes and it wrecked their world. Upon returning, they sadly learned that it also happens here at “home”.
Determined to “Do Something” the SHIFT Freedom Conference was born. Parents were stunned to learn that this was happening right here in our own community. The response to continue was overwhelming so SHIFT Freedom became a 501c3 dedicated to “Empower to Prevent”.
Together we have the goal to unite the community to “SHIFT from Awareness to Action”.
We speak to audiences large and small to equip youth and parents to know the signs of trafficking, to prevent our precious children from falling for the lures that are being used. To date thousands have heard the Voice of SHIFT and a few remembered the Voice of SHIFT when they unknowingly found themselves being targeted for trafficking. Fortunately they remembered what they had learned – They knew what action to take and STAYED SAFE!
The 4th Annual SHIFT Freedom Conference just finished in late February. Uniting with students, adults/parents, experts in the field, legislators, business and community leaders and keynote speaker Lisa Bevere of Messenger International, our goal was to equip as many as possible so that they in-turn can reach others with the message and Empower to Prevent!
We also recognize the unique needs of survivors are not being met. The SHIFT Freedom Network was created to provide the services, skills, counseling, housing that survivors need to live in true emotional and physical freedom. Currently we have 20+ local and international organizations within the network.
This year’s Conference launched the SHIFT Freedom Course. Curriculum to aid individuals, schools, small groups and parents. You will be able to come alongside youth by raising them with the knowledge and identity that Prevents sex-trafficking!
Sadly, Denver metro ranks among the most lucrative cities in the U.S. for child sex trafficking. We believe it’s because NO ONE is standing in the way.
Please consider partnering with us. We cannot do this alone. We need your help to reach more people. Help us keep our children’s innocence and spare them from being lured into an ugly world with no hope. It is ONLY by working Together, uniting with law enforcement, legislators, educators, experts in the field and YOU that we can make the SHIFT to Freedom!
