About Colonial Flag Foundation
The Colonial Flag Foundation is a 501(C)(3) non-profit which develops and implements programs to help bring awareness, educate and raise funds for organizations around the country.
About Operation Underground Railroad
Is a 501(C)(3) non-profit founded by Tim Ballard which assists governments around the world in the rescue of human trafficking and sex trafficking victims, with a special focus on children. O.U.R. also aids with planning, prevention, capture, and prosecution of offenders, and works with partner organizations for prevention, victim recovery, strengthened awareness, and fundraising efforts.
Here in the United States, child sex trafficking can intersect with domestic child abuse. When a victim is trafficked by a family member, very often domestic violence is also taking place. Violence in the home can also cause victims to become more vulnerable of being trafficked outside of the home, as both abusers and traffickers use similar tactics, including power and control, to dominate their victims.
Understanding the intersection between domestic child abuse and sex trafficking is extremely important for
raising awareness of the realities of what survivors and victims’ face. (Unicef, NRCDV.org)
About National Exchange Club
