Human Trafficking in Wisconsin

Human trafficking happens out in the open, right in public, and many people don’t realize that it’s happening. We are on a mission to change that. Imagine a place where somebody on every block knows the signs of human trafficking and acts when they see it. Imagine how trafficking would go from hidden in plain sight to obvious--in plain sight. Imagine how, one by one, traffickers would be identified and arrested. Imagine how survivors would find support at Eye Heart World, face their trauma, and build the lives they want to live. The more people know about trafficking, the more people are on the lookout for this modern-day slavery. We are passionate about raising awareness about human trafficking. There are 3...

May Newsletter from Wisconsin

Survivors at Work The Rose Home is our holistic program designed to fully prepare survivors of sex trafficking to live independently. Workforce preparation is very important to us because a good job is essential to an independent life. It’s why we help survivors build the skills they need to earn a living and follow their dreams. We’re excited to let you know that two of our participants are using their skills at local jobs!   One survivor recently got a job and started training in the end of May. She said they just threw her into the job, but because she had prior experience at a similar job, she felt like it was second nature. She is very excited to...

April Newsletter from Wisconsin

April was Sexual Assault Awareness Month. People who experience sexual assault are more vulnerable to become victims of sex trafficking. We care about preventing sexual assault. Change You Can See When we shared how Micah at Northern Tide Tattoo helps survivors of sex trafficking, we were overwhelmed at the response! Every time we meet a survivor with a brand from a trafficker, he offers to cover it with a new tattoo—completely for free. One participant at The Rose Home had a black brand. Now it's completely obscured by brightly-colored lotus flowers, thanks to Micah. The survivor chose lotus flowers because they can grow in the mud. The tattoo reminds her of being a flower growing into something beautiful despite her childhood...

March Newsletter from Alabama

One Year of Freedom at The Rose Center The Rose Center celebrated one year of fighting human trafficking on March 20th! Our dreams of a safe place for women and girls at risk of trafficking came true when we opened The Rose Center. For one year, we've been able to help women and girls at risk of — or involved with — trafficking meet their needs, self-identify as victims, attain coping skills, and gain workplace skills. We have seen our participants at the Rose Center experience love like never before and be empowered to leave a life of trafficking and trauma. This is what it’s all about: to show survivors that they are enough — that they do not need to do anything to deserve love. In...

March Newsletter from Wisconsin

HEALING INSIDE & OUT AT THE ROSE HOME Two new participants joined The Rose Home this month! One is a returning participant who was not ready to complete the program before. We’re so glad to welcome her back! One participant attended her first tattoo consultation to cover up a brand from her trafficker. Traffickers use brands to claim ownership over a person and dehumanize them, and that message can stick with a survivor. When we asked this participant what her brand means to her, she said, “It makes me feel like I’m still stuck in the past.” Even though this survivor lives at The Rose Home now, her brand was a physical marker of the trafficking and addiction she fought...
