Not Alone: Survivors and Activists

Working Together in the Fight Against Human Trafficking

The Not Alone exhibition educates visitors about human trafficking and gives them a sense of hope and empowerment in combating the issue.

Human trafficking is one of the most significant issues facing our communities today. In Texas alone, hundreds of thousands of people are trafficked every year. Trafficking can happen in any community and can affect anyone regardless of age, race, ethnicity, gender, or nationality.

Stories of survivors and advocates help to reveal answers to guiding questions: what is human trafficking? who does trafficking affect? what role do healthy relationships play? what is the role of social media? and what can I do?
