About Utah Stop Traffic Walk 2024

The Stop Traffic Walk is your opportunity to support the nation’s largest human trafficking rescue and rehabilitation operation in North America, and this year we're raising funds for the Short Creek Dream Center. This Utah organization is on the front lines, rescuing trafficked individuals and helping them rebuild their lives with strength and hope.

What to Expect

The event kicks off at 3 p.m. with a family-friendly festival at Liberty Park in Salt Lake City. We've got bounce houses, games, and activities for the kids, plus a variety of food vendors and live entertainment to keep the energy high. Bring your friends and family for an afternoon of fun and inspiration!

Our walk begins at dusk, on a paved path within Liberty Park.  This symbolic journey is aimed at spreading awareness about human trafficking and honoring the strength of survivors.  It's less than a mile, but the impact is huge. This is your chance to stand up against the injustice of human trafficking and show your support for those who have survived it.

Why Participate and Spread Awareness?

HUMAN TRAFFICKING is modern-day slavery and is believed to be the third-largest criminal activity in the world.  There are an estimated 40 million victims of trafficking, globally.  Victims of trafficking are often lured with false promises, only to find themselves trapped in a cycle of abuse, exploitation, and violence. 

Together, we can bring hope to survivors, restore their dignity, and pave the way for a safer world where trafficking is no longer a threat.  You're not just standing for a cause; you're aligning with a community of passionate individuals dedicated to making a tangible difference.

Your support sends a clear message "we see the victims, we stand with them, and we will not rest until every person is free from the horrors of trafficking."

How Your Support Makes a Difference

Your support will help fund critical services for survivors, including safe housing, medical care, counseling, and legal assistance.  It will also support education and prevention programs that raise awareness and reduce the risk of trafficking in vulnerable communities.  Additionally, your contribution will aid in advocacy efforts that push for stronger laws and stricter enforcement against traffickers, ensuring that those responsible are held accountable.
