Putting a stop to human trafficking can only happen if people are made aware of its existence. Enlighten believes that educating ourselves and others is key to freeing those enslaved, helping survivors, and stopping the demand for human trafficking.
We have compiled a list of resources in the Columbus, OH area and nationally. Additional resources include books, movies and links that can help educate and inspire those wanting to join us in putting a stop to modern day slavery.
Freedom A La Cart, Columbus, OH
In 2009, our founders established Doma as a community-based support program for adult survivors of human trafficking. Two years later they expanded the program to fill the void between restoration and economic independence, and purchased a food cart as a work force training tool for survivors. While Doma offered supportive services toward restoration, Freedom a la Cart gave survivors a job and means to live. Freedom became the vehicle – literally – through which survivors began the ever important first steps to self-sufficiency.
