The Human Trafficking Initiative works to address the issue of child sex trafficking in Greater Atlanta. Sexual exploitation is the most damaging form of child abuse.

The Issue

Sex trafficking in Atlanta is a $290 million-a-year business and drives more revenue than the illegal drug and gun trade combined, exploiting our community‚Äôs most vulnerable population — children.

United Way's Role

United Way is working to address child sex trafficking by teaming up with numerous nonprofits, volunteers, donors and government to increase public awareness.

The Results

United Way is focusing on prevention and training for our agencies in partnership with United Way worldwide. We are in the midst of new program roll-outs and results will be available soon.
