Awareness 2 Action

January is National Human Trafficking Prevention Month. At Healing Action, we know the cruel effects of human trafficking and commercial sexual exploitation. But we also know the hope and joy that is possible for every survivor when they have the chance to heal and thrive.

Join us this month as we spread awareness about the realities of trafficking and exploitation in St. Louis and Missouri and raise funds to support the healing of the survivors we serve.

Through our Awareness 2 Action’s peer-to-peer fundraisers, anyone who is interested in combatting human trafficking can channel the power of their giving and work with their friends, families, co-workers, neighborhoods, and local communities to make a meaningful impact for survivors. 

Throughout January, anyone interested in joining the campaign can sign up to be an A2A Advocate and set their own fundraising goal to support survivors of sex trafficking and commercial sexual exploitation at Healing Action.  

In partnership with the Coalition Against Trafficking and Exploitation (CATE), the A2A campaign will be providing training and educational opportunities throughout the month. Training updates will be provided through Healing Action and CATE’s social media pages.

Healing Action will be hosting a Celebration of Hope Happy Hour at the end of the campaign to thank participants and look forward to the future. The Celebration of Hope date and location will be announced mid-January.

“The Awareness 2 Action campaign is a way to unify our community against the persistent problem of human trafficking. While it is still largely thought to be only an international issue, trafficking is happening right here.”
