SHIFT is uniting in the fight to bring awareness and a call to action within the community to fight human trafficking. Their goal? To “SHIFT from Awareness to Action!” This student led initiative will bring many elements together with one aim: EMPOWER TO PREVENT. The vision of the SHIFT is to educate the community at large and to mobilize them into taking action to fight sex trafficking both locally and globally.

Justice Run is just ONE way to show your support and help make a difference. Look for the annual conference to take place February of 2018 as well.
