NOT HERE Presents:  The Governor’s Summit on Human Trafficking

November 12 & 13, 2015

The Countdown: 98 days remaining


August 4th began our 100 day countdown leading up to The Governor’s Summit on Human Trafficking in Maine. Over these 100 days, we will be sharing a fact, a resource, or a perspective each day, to raise awareness, encourage discussion, and inspire action against injustice, both domestically, and globally.



This TED talk with Gary Haugen from International Justice Mission draws attention to the pervasive problem of violence and its impact on global poverty. In 1994, Gary Haugen was sent to Rwanda as part of the United Nations team investigating war crimes in the country. His life was changed forever by what he saw there, and he was moved to found International Justice Mission upon his return to the United States.


International Justice Mission is a global organization devoted to protecting the poor from violence in the developing world, including victims of trafficking and slavery.  While global philanthropy has increased in over the years, Haugen’s TED talk speaks well to the role violence plays in perpetuating the global problem of poverty that leaves communities vulnerable to traffickers around the globe.
We are excited to share with you that International Justice Mission will be sending a representative to The Governor’s Summit on Human Trafficking here in Maine to share more! 


We invite you to like us on facebook, follow us on twitter, and share these resources in your social networks to help us raise awareness that yes, human trafficking DOES happen in Maine AND around the globe, and EVERYONE needs to be involved to stop it. 



Be a part of the movement that declares Not Here!
