Trafficking is a local issue: there are more than 120 illicit massage businesses just in Fairfax County, where most local sex trafficking takes place. So Reset180 — one of the only organizations in the county that serves human trafficking survivors — reaches out to them via text, offering resources to gain freedom from sexual exploitation. Law enforcement, social workers, the human trafficking hotline, and church leaders refer local survivors to them for wrap-around case management support. Those who are ready to start a new life, work with staff to set goals and receive trauma-informed care. A trained speakers bureau educates the broader community on how to prevent, identify, and report human trafficking, while an outreach team initiates small group, non-judgmental conversations with sex buyers about the harms of sex trafficking. As one survivor shares, "I'm finally healing from the trauma and becoming stronger."
