What We Do

What We Do

The Kalamazoo Anti-Human Trafficking Coalition is fighting trafficking in Kalamazoo County. We do this through awareness, advocacy, training, and victim assistance.

 

Awareness: 

We educate our community about the true nature of human trafficking, equipping people to recognize it and know what to do about it. To request a speaker from KAHTC to present to your group, click here. For information on an upcoming KAHTC awareness event, click here.

Advocacy:

Together with the Junior League of Kalamazoo, we advocate for legislation at the state level that will benefit the anti-trafficking cause in Michigan.

Training:

We train professionals who might likely come into contact with someone in a trafficking situation (law enforcement, teachers, medical staff, social workers, etc.) to recognize and respond to trafficking. We also teach adolescents how to avoid being targeted by sex traffickers. To request a training, click here.

Assistance:

We coordinate services for people coming out of a trafficking situation. We work with organizations in the area to provide housing, counseling, medical help, and aid with transitioning into a healthy life. To request services, click here.
