Stop Human Trafficking Committee

Stop Human Trafficking Committee Purpose 

The Stop Human Trafficking Committee exists to effectively engage in anti-trafficking efforts. Our focus is community collaboration, awareness and advocacy.

About the Committee

The Junior League of Portland’s Stop Human Trafficking Committee was formed to focus on spreading awareness, advocating for survivors, and community collaboration. Together with the community, we strive to shed light on domestic human trafficking and the commercial sexual exploitation of children. Through funding from the Junior League of Portland and a grant from La Salle Preparatory School, JLP made a documentary, Waiting for the Light: Portland’s Sex Trafficking Crisis, which focuses on child sex trafficking in Portland, OR.
