Our Vision

To see every woman, man and child in the world free to thrive.

Freedom is a Human Right.


At Traffic Stops Where Love Begins  we are committed to ending Modern-Day Slavery and Human Trafficking. We wish to see every woman, man, and child in the world free to thrive . We create awareness campaigns, and art and music events to educate the public on this issue and we provide support to organizations that share common purposes and qualify as tax-exempt 501(c)(3) organizations.

More than 20 million people worldwide are working as modern-day slaves and generating billions of dollars worth of illegal profits annually. Human Trafficking, a form of Modern-Day Slavery, is a $150 billion dollar industry and the fastest growing criminal enterprise globally. While a global concern, the epidemic is close to home as O’Hare International airport is considered a “highly used transit location by traffickers to transport men, women, young girls and children and disperse them as needed to other cities and states”. (Chicago Council on Global Affairs. 10/11/17)



As insurmountable as these facts may seem, there is so much we, as concerned citizens, can do. We would like to invite you to be part of our efforts in bringing creative solutions to this issue.

By supporting our organization’s fundraising events, and our educational and awareness campaigns, you will be exposed to an influential audience committed to investing in their communities and the society at large.

Modern-day slavery is an issue that concerns all of us. Join us in our efforts to eradicate such human right violation and in turn, let’s restore men and women's dignity and provide protection, education and care to vulnerable children and young girls who deserve to be free to grow, to play, and to develop their inherent potential. 

 Thank you for helping us make a difference!
