IN OUR BACKYARD Receives U.S. Congressional Record of Commendation


We are honored to have achieved U.S. Congressional Record of commendation for IN OUR BACKYARD’s anti-trafficking efforts with Freedom Stickers and Convenience Stores Against Trafficking (CSAT). We are grateful for our long-standing relationship with Congressman Poe and for his great work to stop human trafficking. 
“Now, IN OUR BACKYARD is attempting to turn the tables on these criminals and transform convenience stores into places where victims can come across both highly trained staff members and information on hotlines and websites where they can get help. With over 11,000 convenience store locations in 29 states – including many in my home state of Texas – this organization has been able to
help victims all over the country.” – Congressman Poe

Teens Against Trafficking is centered on giving students information and tools to identify and define human trafficking; steps they can take to prevent it from happening to themselves and their peers; and what they can do if they identify a trafficker or their victim.
