13 people were recently arrested in Central Texas on counts of human trafficking and prostitution. Several massage businesses have been closed for investigation. (Link in profile for news story.) According to recent research from Polaris, illicit massage businesses bring in revenues of around $2.5 billion per year.

Jim Caviezel was in town this week to immerse himself in all things O.U.R. and prepare for his role as Tim Ballard in an upcoming feature film called Sound of Freedom. Thanks for coming out, Jim! Good luck with filming this summer. @timballard89 #JimCaviezel

She showed Jessica her carefully painted and decorated nails and said, “If I could do anything, I would help other girls feel beautiful.” This young survivor told Jessica about her dreams to work at a beauty salon. She was rescued with three other girls this past January during Operation Toussaint. We are grateful for our Aftercare team who spent the first 72 hours after the operation with these amazing survivors to help them feel safe.

Attorney General Mark Herring is making a difference in the fight against trafficking in Virginia by putting up billboards featuring the National Human Trafficking Hotline. These billboards are meant to target and inform traffickers, victims, and the public. The billboards are being posted on frequently traveled roads in hopes of reaching over 2 million people. Spreading awareness can be a very effective way to fight trafficking. We are grateful for everyone involved in this campaign! Img src: pilotonline.com.

Anna recently turned 18 and graduated from her aftercare home. Despite the difficult things she faced in her life, her hope bracelet continued to provide her with strength. Someone had donated some bracelets through @hero_bands for one of the aftercare homes we support. This small donation helped Anna know that someone cared about her and gave her the HOPE to keep going. Link in profile for full story. #ourrescue #endhumantrafficking

Remember Frankie? This special K9 works with Detective Pereira in California as an electronics detection dog, paid for by doTERRA Healing Hands through O.U.R. Last month Frankie conducted his first search, and located three pieces of electronic evidence! Pereira says he is invaluable to the task force, and “adds just another level to make sure that we don’t miss that evidence,” which is critical in capturing perpetrators of online child exploitation. See link in profile for the story behind how Frankie came to the Fairfield PD’s computer crimes unit! #K9 (img src: thereporter.com) @doterrahhf @doterra
