Congratulations to Freedom-U on the amazing progress of engaging students in anti-trafficking efforts. This exciting adventure will bring many dividends for all those involved. Students are the best hope for eradicating human trafficking in their life-time. This generation is filled with HOPE and can bring hope by providing solutions. These solutions can include advocacy, prevention, restoration of victims, and many other avenues for change. The future of the abolitionists movement is promising and Freedom-U will undoubtedly help many find their personal expression of eradicating trafficking!

We are so excited to see how so much of the work we have done in the last 4 years feeds into this wonderful and ambitious initiative.  Freedom-U brings so many of key players,  elements and plans together in such a strategic way.  There is so much fresh energy from students, faculty, and agencies who have decided to participate in Freedom-U.  

Human trafficking is a complex issue that requires innovation and new thinking. We work with professionals at the federal, state and local level who are working to combat trafficking.  We all have this understanding that we are fighting a multi-billion dollar-a-year crime...on  a budget.  Freedom-U opens new possibilities to address issues and gaps that hinder our efforts to protect future targets and restore those who have victimized.  

Freedom-U is very much a group effort.  We are grateful for the many who have contributed time, treasure and/or talent.  We sincerely hope, you decide to be among those who decide to join us.  Let's change the world together.

I have been given the unique opportunity as an intern to be involved in the visioning and planning of the Freedom-U initiative. I am excited to not only be part of such an important human rights issue, but also to be learning SO many new skills and making connections with people in my field of study!  I have been learning about web development and assisting in building the Freedom-U site, that will connect students and professionals around the cause of human trafficking!

I'm an intern studying at UTSA and I have been busy working on many of the things you see on the Freedom-U site. It's really exciting being a part of the early stages in putting together Freedom-U and it's even more exciting being able to contribute to the content you see on the Freedom-U site. I can't wait to see what great things are going to come from Freedom-U as even more students become a part of the Freedom-U Movement.
