Van Tour

This past week a few team members went on a Van Tour around Northern Virginia. For some, it was their first time being on a tour receiving information of what Illicit Massage Businesses (IMBs) were, aka Brothels, and specific locations on where trafficking occurred. Right in our backyard.

IMBs, or Brothels, are businesses that front as commercial sex businesses. The women who provide illicit services are also known as a victims of sex trafficking. They are being held by numerous means whether it is by force, fraud or manipulation. As the IMBs were being pointed out, one right after the other, a few were actually almost 1000 feet from each other. The team became equipped with the knowledge of what is happening in our community and it became apparent that God has a plan for each of us to help #endhumantrafficking.

We can truly affect our community for the better. Step one is bringing awareness that this even exists. NOVA-HTI offers resources and/or a way out to those impacted, if they choose to leave or get help, both for victims and buyers. Want to get involved? #donate #volunteer #educateyourself
