Take Action

Now that you’ve taken the Defenders’ pledge, take action! Become a hero. Help us defend women and children by fighting sex trafficking and exploitation. There are 3 main ways you can take action. You can become more informed, give time, or give money. (Every financial gift you give to Shared Hope and the Defenders enables us to restore more women and children internationally, and here in the U.S. as well.)

Typically, when guys first learn about child sex trafficking, we go through several phases: denial, anger, acceptance, then we take action. We shouldn’t physically hunt down traffickers. We shouldn’t kick down a pimp’s door like in the movies (leave that to trained law enforcement). Instead, we can take action in our own lives, by defending our families and those we love from this global problem.

Here are 9 simple ways to take action:

  1. Become informed about how child trafficking really works in America. Order Renting Lacy: A story of America’s Prostituted Children by Linda Smith
  2. Start a Defenders Men’s Group in your area (click here to find out how)
  3. Follow Shared Hope International and the Defenders to your Facebook or Twitter
  4. Host a Defenders event and/or speak to your group of friends or community
  5. Donate to the Defenders and Shared Hope International to protect, defend, and restore
  6. Host a showing of the new documentary “Chosen” for your family, business, community group, or faith-based organization
  7. Share the Defenders video with people you know
  8. Organize Defenders’ to distribute literature near venues promoting domestic minor sex trafficking
