Street Grace

Initiatives

There is no single solution to demanding an end to the sexual exploitation of children, but we believe if we all contribute to the fight, we can eradicate this evil industry. We’ve designed the following initiatives to help mobilize communities and resources – financial, human and material – to help create a web of protection and advocacy.

Prevention & Protection

Youth Education Initiative

This initiative stops the cycle of CSEC by arming youth with the knowledge needed to protect themselves and their peers from falling victim to the tactics used by those seeking to exploit them.

Faith Outreach

Through education and training we increase awareness of sexual exploitation within the faith community. In partnership with Street Grace, faith partners receive an increased volunteer network, safer communities, protected youth, and a sustainable organization.

Street Grace Training

This initiative trains cities, municipalities, government personnel, and business sectors to recognize and report suspected cases of sex trafficking. We also equip law enforcement officers with the knowledge needed to arrest and aggressively prosecute purchasers and traffickers.

Street Teams

Help stop the cycle of CSEC by directly reaching out to those living in motels or apartments in high-risk areas and known trafficking locations to show love, hope, and provide resources through local churches.

Law Enforcement Training

As first-responders it is imperative that our officers are trained to properly identify and treat potential victims of sexual exploitation. These trainings ensure that a victim-centered approach is used from the very start and that perpetrators are prosecuted properly.

Pursuit

Transaction Intercept

TI measurably disrupts transactions before they occur through the use of an award-winning artificial intelligence chatbot. By posting decoy ads on websites where trafficking frequently takes place, the program disrupts tens of thousands of calls and texts.

Law Enforcement Collaborations

Allows data collected by artificial intelligence to aid in the arrest and prosecution of perpetrators by providing law enforcement with the platform needed to have a human in the loop, arrange meet ups, and gather demographics creating a seamless and efficient process.

Demand Reduction Initiatives

Delivers resources directly to potential buyers and those suffering from related trauma and / or addictions in order to provide a first step in the healing process. Curbing the demand for the exploitation of children efficiently includes helping those that are currently contributing to it and bringing them in to the fight against CSEC.

Policy

Policy Initiatives

Street Grace’s policy work provides state, local and national governmental leaders with the tools to pass legislation that will combat human trafficking. We assist in drafting legislation and provide training for officials and governmental employees.

Street Grace Justice Project

Spearheaded by former US Ambassador-at-Large for Trafficking in Persons Susan Coppedge and former Attorney General Sam Olens, the Street Grace Justice Project that trains and connects attorneys with survivors who need help vacating or restricting their records.

Anti-sex Trafficking Lobby Day

Lobby Day unites churches, businesses, community members and nonprofits all with the common goal of advocating for legislation that protects survivors of sex trafficking and targets the demand for the Underground Commercial Sex Economy (UCSE).

Illicit Massage Industry

Addresses systemic gaps and vulnerabilities in the law that allow this type of trafficking network. Legislative recommendations will be made by an advisory board comprised of representatives from key state and local government offices, survivors, law enforcement and nonprofits.

Policy Trainings

Allow attendees to turn advocacy into action as we engage in legislature to affect real change on a state and national level.

Additional Programming

Suburban Horror Story

Our Suburban Horror Story project educates people on how to identify and help prevent sex trafficking. Through an immersive theatrical experience, visitors get a taste of what this illegal industry entails, and what victims endure.

The Candy Shop

The Candy Shop is an original film written and produced for Street Grace to expose the realities of Domestic Minor Sex Trafficking in a way that is both accessible and non-graphic.
