CABW 031: Fighting Human Trafficking with Rescue 1 Global

“The world of human trafficking, both labor and sex trafficking, is not a new thing but the world of anti-trafficking is.” ~ Lacy Tolar. 

Human trafficking is the second fastest growing criminal industry in the world, trailing the drug industry.  It has estimated an annual revenue of $42.5 billion and America is the #1 consumer of human trafficking due to the national and international consumption of commercialized sex and pornography.  

The average age a person enters into the sex industry is 13 years of age, with 70% women and 30% men.  According to the International Labor Organization, over 45 million people are enslaved in human trafficking with another child entering this world of trafficking every 2 minutes.  In Lacy’s state of Tennessee – 700-900 children run away in a month, and according to national statistics, 1 out of every 6 children end up in human trafficking within 72 hours. 

On this episode, Dr. Natalie Phillips chats with Lacy Tolar, Founder of Rescue 1 Global. She shares her story about how her OWN child was almost taken right beneath her grasp and how she and her husband, Daniel changed the path of their lives with Rescue 1 Global, a standalone full-fledged prevention, rescue & restoration mission and force in the anti-trafficking world 

“It’s about rescuing ONE. There is a need around every corner. You never know who that ONE will be. Step in and step out of your comfort zone. ONE is worth it.” ~ Lacy Tolar
