HOW TO GET INVOLVED
Our purpose is to help the community, people like you, be connected with opportunities to help. We are so excited that have a chance to help us make a difference in Northern Virginia. Please fill out our contact form at the bottom of this page to let us know other ways you might want to help in. Otherwise, below are some of the main ways we hope you will become involved:
Whether you are a member of the community or part of a local congregation, we know you can influence and bring awareness to those around you. Who is in your circle?
PRAY FOR CHANGE
As dedicated as we are to justice, we know our best efforts will never be enough. We believe God ultimately works through us as we surrender to His will and seek His face.
CARE FOR VICTIMS
Victims of trafficking need immediate and long-term care for their physical, emotional and spiritual needs. We believe you can significantly alter a survivor's life.
Whether by educating students on how to recognize when they are at risk, or by walking with buyers who are overcoming their addictions, trafficking can be prevented from ever happening.
We would be nothing without the many volunteers who give of their time, talents and resources to help bring justice, freedom, and hope to the NOVA area. The Coordination Team welcomes, trains, and sustains the incredible volunteers that have chosen to fight for freedom alongside us.

YOUR SUPPORT IS APPRECIATED!
A MESSAGE FROM ATTORNEY GENERAL MARK R. HERRING
“Human trafficking is an emerging public safety threat across our nation, including here in Virginia. It is one of the fastest growing criminal enterprises in the country and is nothing more than modern-day slavery. Human trafficking has a devastating impact on the victims, who suffer through physical, emotional, and psychological abuse, assaults, threats, identity theft, and possibly death. It all too often robs its victims of their freedom, their dignity, and too often their childhood. Sheer numbers do not do justice to the crime. Human trafficking deprives people of their human rights and freedoms, creates a health and safety risk, and fuels the growth of criminal enterprises and organized crime.
As Attorney General, combating human trafficking is a major priority in my office with a focus on education for criminal justice professionals, service providers and community members, legislative advocacy efforts and community outreach. My office remains committed to ongoing collaboration and work with state-wide entities that strive to end human trafficking, to hold perpetrators accountable, and provide essential life-saving resources to victims. To those of you striving to eradicate this crime and serving those affected by it…THANK YOU! Together we will continue work together to ensure the safety and freedom for those within our Commonwealth.”
