Podcast Series brought to you by F.R.E.E.
OUR MISSION at FREE is to raise awareness, advocate for the enslaved, and shine a light in the darkness in an effort to end human trafficking.
OUR VISION at FREE is to end human trafficking, in particular, sex trafficking and sexual exploitation, in Berks County by educating, equipping, and empowering our community to take action against modern-day slavery.
FREE is a non-profit organization in Berks County, Pennsylvania dedicated to fighting human trafficking in our community. FREE works to educate, equip, and empower our community to take action against human trafficking. FREE carries out this mission by focusing attention where there are gaps in awareness and services. We then work collaboratively with professionals, community leaders, and individuals, uniting our efforts to prevent and remove human trafficking from our community. FREE is a member of the Berks Coalition Against Human Trafficking (BCAHT) along with other professionals from our local community, as well as the Eastern PA Anti-Trafficking Network (EPAT).
Our main focus at FREE is advocacy. We educate and raise awareness in our community about what human trafficking is, what the signs and indicators are, how to identify at-risk individuals and provide ways we can all take action against human trafficking. A specific focus we also have is prevention work with youth in an effort to keep them from ever being trafficked or exploited. FREE’s main focus is advocating for those affected by sex trafficking and sexual exploitation.
