Mission Statement

Human Trafficking is a $150 billion industry worldwide, and it is happening throughout the world in every country and across the United States in every major city and small town. The selling of bodies of women and children is the fastest-growing industry in the world, and an incredibly lucrative criminal industry, second only to drug trafficking. According to the Department of State, 2 million women and children are victims of human trafficking every year. In the United States, 300 thousand children are forced into child prostitution and child pornography each year. In Washington DC alone, trafficking innocent children is a $100 million industry. Innocents at Risk is a child-advocacy non-for-profit 501 (c)(3) organization established to fight human trafficking by raising awareness and educating about this problem among the international and diplomatic community, the corporate sector, students in public schools and universities and among the general public. We also work with flight attendants, who are our first line of defense in spotting and reporting traffickers. We are dedicated to protecting children from all forms of abuse, and work to end child exploitation and child trafficking everywhere.
