Veterans and Military
Our vision is that every child in the US would live free from this form of slavery and the threat of it; where the innocence of all children is reclaimed and restored; and where the Guardian Group is the most trusted and effective resource in the fight against human trafficking in the US. We are seeing this vision come to life of more girls being recovered.
Guardian Group's team utilizes the skills and expertise of elite veteran intelligence analysts to identify and locate women and minors who are victims of sex trafficking. Our support assists local, state, and federal law enforcement in recovering these victims. We provide training at no cost to law enforcement agencies in order to ensure they have the most up to date techniques used by sex traffickers. Further, we provide training to hotels, hospitals, and other venues in order to inoculate communities against sex trafficking.
Commercial sexual exploitation in America continues to grow, replacing drugs and arms as the most profitable sector in organized crime. In fact, estimates place sex trafficking in America as an industry in the tens of billions of dollars with much of the activity now hosted online across a variety of site.
Every day in America there are 150,000 new advertisements selling people for sex, many of whom are victims of sex trafficking. This crime against women and children continues to grow, driven by a perverse supply and demand cycle that has little counterweight by the US legal system.
Our answer to countering the growth of sex trafficking in the US is the growth of our PURSUIT and Project 1591 programs that assist law enforcement in recovering more victims and therefore place more pressure on traffickers. Over time this will disincentivize traffickers to exploit women and children, and sex trafficking will decrease in the US.
Our proven approach to combating sex trafficking is making a real and lasting impact across the United States. Our strategic growth plan maximizes every dollar of support guaranteeing that together we make the most meaningful impact possible.
