Our Holistic Approach:
To end human trafficking in America, we must stop the demand. The #1 buyer of sex with a minor in the U.S. is a male who makes over $100,000 a year, is married, and has two children. Therefore, we must see that the root cause of sexual exploitation is the breakdown of the nuclear family. The impact of fatherlessness, pornography, and a hyper-sexualized culture is rapidly destroying the importance of family the way God intended.
29 Years on the Frontlines:
With 29 years of fighting trafficking, Jaco Booyens is the leading voice in America addressing the entire ecosystem that feeds human trafficking. Our team collaborates with 170+ anti-trafficking organizations nationwide, as well as local and federal law enforcement agencies. JBM is consistently tracking the evolution of this crime in real time. This intel allows us to conduct a global gap analysis to best advocate for the needs of the anti-trafficking community on all fronts (legislation, awareness, training our first responders and government officials). JBM sees early and is able to sound the alarm - warning the American public about what’s happening to their children.
Our Strategy to Save Lives:
While we do real-life rescues, JBM has proven that we can save more lives through early intervention. We are proactively intercepting minors before they meet up with potential predators. We do this by training parents, communities, legislators, and first responders to identify at-risk youth. The average cost of rescuing and placing one victim in a safe house is $5,000. A safe house spends on average $40,000 a year rehabilitating that survivor. Our ultimate mission is to save children before they need to be rescued. “If you can break a child, you can break a nation.” - Frederick Douglass
