History

The Stop Human Trafficking – Eastern Missouri, Southern Illinois Network is a network of service providers, law enforcement, concerned citizens and awareness raising initiatives throughout Eastern Missouri and parts of Southern Illinois that strive to share resources to better protect and provide for victims of human trafficking. We seek to provide resources to frontline service providers, law enforcement and the general community to increase identification of those in need. Additionally, we strive to facilitate quality and speedy service delivery through fostering the communication network of those working to combat trafficking in persons.

Our goal through this project is to provide resources that will

  • arm the general community with the knowledge necessary to look beneath the surface and report on suspicions of exploitation,
  • link law enforcement and service providers in a victim-centered approach to investigations and prosecutions
  • equip service providers with the information necessary to afford appropriate and quality services to victims of trafficking
