Human Trafficking is happening right here in Maryland! Most people think this is a problem in some other country and certainly not right here in Baltimore.

Freedom 4/24 was started to raise awareness of the sexual exploitation of human trafficking of women and children around the world and provide financial support to partner organizations dedicated to bringing freedom and doing justice.
