The Austin 20 supports organizations that assist children victimized by sex trafficking by filling the gaps in the continuum of care available to help them.
Every year, countless youth are forcibly funneled through Texas highways, railways, runways and alleyways. There are specific programs earmarked to help these kids, but without enough money, the programs sit idle.
Right now, kids who have been trafficked and picked up by local authorities have very few places to seek refuge.
Right now, only a portion of our police officers, airline and motel employees and ER workers are trained to identify potential victims of this crime.
Right now, ads featuring minors for sex are splashed across various dark pockets of the internet without a cyber patrol disrupting their activity.
The Austin 20 provides funding for organizations that help children who are victims of this insidious crime, with a focus on the Austin area. Please help us help them.
YOU can make an IMPACT!
