Jason Torres, Mission Coordinator
Jason Torres is a New York City artist with many talents. His interest in human trafficking began about two years ago when he read a newspaper article about a women’s shelter. It disclosed that many of the women were tricked and forced into prostitution when they were just children. From that moment on, research and awareness about the trafficking of people became a priority in Jason’s life. He has a keen eye to see slavery in many situations, from bondage labor in the work force, to women and girls being prostituted. Jason states, “It’s happening all around us, and we need to take action.
