Tread on Trafficking is something Love146 supporters do every summer. Thousands of people run, bike, swim and work out -- all in the name of abolition. Treaders do something physical and ask sponsors to support them, with all money raised going towards ending child trafficking and exploitation.

Hi Task Forces,
Recent fires in Pakistan and Bangladesh have caused killed more than 400 people, and are giving people yet another reason to take a critical look at the factory conditions where consumer products are made.

Hi Task Forces,
We're excited to introduce that we'll be starting a lesson series on trafficking called Abolition 101! The purpose of these lessons is to delve into a specific topic, and move forward in the goal of becoming the neighborhood abolitionists all over the world. These lessons will be compilations of resources, such as articles, reviews of related organizations, academic articles, and film/book recommendations. If your Task Force is interested in creating a lesson for the series about trafficking in your region or on another topic, contact email@example.com.
First up: boys.
