Traffick Free is volunteer-driven, anti-human trafficking non-profit organization based in Chicago, Illinois. We strive to combat human trafficking through raising awareness of the issue through informational sessions and public events including the Run for Freedom 5K and the Freedom Forum. Traffick Free also standing in the gap of current services for trafficked and exploited individuals by meeting survivor needs through their vast network of partners. Traffick Free’s most recent and innovative project is a Chicago-based 24/7 drop-in center for self-identifying female victims of sexual exploitation. This drop-in center is targeted to open during the summer.
