“Engage Together’s model is nothing short of revolutionary, providing breakthrough and unity in ways I’ve not experienced before. To have leaders unite around a common vision of ‘Ending Human Trafficking’ and being willing to have hard, candid conversations about what it will take to get there together was powerful to say the least…bearing fruit in just the few short weeks following, with leaders continuing to come together to put action to the conversation and living out the commitment to the united vision. Simply stated… powerful.”

How Does Engage Together® Project Work?
Engage Together Project is a collaborative, transformative experience designed specifically to address common challenges and accelerate multi-sector mobilization, providing a path for breakthrough and success for all those working to end human trafficking in their community.
Common challenges – a community response often follows this path:
1. Awareness Grows
The community becomes aware of the impact of human trafficking and begins working diligently to combat it and prevent it.
2. New Programs and Services are created
Those already serving vulnerable populations expand their services. Many new efforts and entities are created to join the cause.
3. Efforts become uncoordinated
With the increase of activity, the challenge quickly becomes keeping up with all the existing efforts and effectively identifying gaps that still need to be filled.
4. Lack of knowledge leads to lack of Direction
As a result, most states and communities are unable to properly forecast what their next steps should be to increase effectiveness – or how to strategically mobilize new groups or sectors to join the cause.
5. Progress slows
At best, this reality leads to slow progress on behalf of those in very great need, and at worst, it leads to conflict, duplicity, and a stalemate of impact.
Engage Together® Project
is designed to overcome these challenges & accelerate impact:
The Project will help any individual or organization working to strengthen the anti-trafficking efforts of their community.
This includes: coalitions and task forces; civic groups; faith-based ministries; nonprofit organizations; community leaders; and more.
