Help Us Rebuild Lives
We’re creating a safe place for victims of human trafficking in Southeast Michigan to rediscover their dignity and rewrite the stories of their lives.
Human Trafficking in Michigan
The term Human trafficking includes domestic activity where little or no transportation is required. It is a modern-day form of slavery, widespread throughout the United States and occurs right here in Michigan.
More than 1200 women have been identified as victims of human trafficking within 3 square miles of Detroit
13% jump in cases of human trafficking identified in 2017 versus 2016 (Polaris)
After drug dealing, it is the 2nd largest crime and fastest growing industry globally
Every 10 minutes, a woman or child is trafficked in the US
What is Hope Against Trafficking?
Hope Against Trafficking is a Southeast Michigan-based campaign in support of the fight against human trafficking and is presented by Monarch Wings, a non-profit 501(c)3 organization.
Hope Against trafficking is a 24-month residential program that provides restorative housing and comprehensive services focused on physical, mental, emotional and economic transformation. This dedicated housing and programming is committed to serving adult female survivors of sex and labor trafficking induced by threat, force and/or coercion.
Hope Against Trafficking partners with local event coordinators and other partners to sponsor fund raising events throughout the year. Hope also has various participation events structured around improving our two safe houses. Volunteers and supporters can check our events to help us rebuild the lives of victims of human trafficking.
In addition to our two restorative homes for survivors, Hope Against Trafficking is dedicated to helping the community become aware of the prevalence of this horrible crime, educate those who could be at risk and help others identify victims to bring them back to safety. We would love to see you at any of our events. If you or any organizations you know are interested in partnering with us or would like our team to come –out and speak, please reach out to us at firstname.lastname@example.org or call us at 248-838-9189
