MEXICO – 2013-2017 Abolish Slavery was initially invited by the famed human rights legend, Mother Antonia… to work in Tijuana, to help minors and women who were bei
ng exploited, sold on the streets, clubs and other areas known to be hot-spots for human trafficking. A Prevention fair was created with Mother Antonia, which led to the first bilateral task forces to address human trafficking on both sides of the border.
2013/2014 Abolish Slavery worked providing intel to both ICE and Mexican authorities. A survivor support group was formed to help the victims and their families, and dozens and dozens of investigations led to the intel to identify the locations where the victims were being subjugated, the addresses were investigated by the respective jurisdictions, and hundreds of victims were rescued.
2015-2017 In searching for a single missing minor, one case led to multiple state wide investigations within Mexico and the United States–that have led to hundreds of rescues. Through various human trafficking investigations and working directly with the parents of the victims, we were able to identity, find, and rescue many more victims.
UNITED STATES – Abolish Slavery has done human trafficking investigations that have led to the rescue of minors and women throughout the U.S including New York, and in 2017 we ended the year by being a part of the investigative teams, from Texas to California, to ensure the rescue of young boys who were trafficked using online social media, Snapchat.

“This film educates the audience on the American-supported Salvadorian Civil War, the government death squads, and Salvadorian war refugees who formed a notorious international gang that is now responsible for trafficking the majority of Central Americans to the U.S.A., making up one of America’s largest trafficking rings.”-Relentless
