In 2007, Christian and community leaders in Arizona became aware of the growing pandemic of child sex trafficking occurring throughout the United States and in their own backyard. In response, we developed a dynamic case study of the potential for solving problems through multi-sector cooperation. Our collaboration include faith communities, major law enforcement agencies (from local vice units to State and U.S. Attorney Generals), medical field, social services, mayor’s offices, like-minded non-profits, Homeland Security and the FBI, students and faculty of leading universities, the business sector and thousands of individuals zealous to play a role in eradicating this injustice. The multi-sector cooperation created a three tier strategy: Awareness, Prevention and Direct Care that guides StreetLightUSA’s work today in fulfilling its mission.
