Education & Prevention Outreach
At Bridging Freedom, we believe knowledge is power. We aim to increase community awareness about child sex-trafficking as a means to help prevent these terrible crimes.
The experts of Bridging Freedom have presented on panels with such organizations as the Department of Justice Human Trafficking Task Force, the Tampa FBI Innocence Lost Initiative, and various prominent anti-human-trafficking leaders.
