Iowa Network Against Human Trafficking

Brady, Brooke, Cary, David & Jordan

The Network Against Human Trafficking is an Iowa-based organization who fights to end modern day slavery by raising awareness, providing education, promoting advocacy and offering service to victims. Human trafficking occurs when vulnerable men, women and children are forced or coerced into involuntary servitude.

Many see this as an issue that doesn’t happen here, but that’s not the case. We hope that through this contest, we can support their efforts to raise awareness and help victims.
