We are a community action group to support the Maryland Human Trafficking Task Force (MHTTF) Victims & Public Services Committee. We seek to combat modern slavery, which is the exploitation of individuals through the use of force, fraud, or coercion, for the purpose of sexual exploitation or forced labor. The purpose of the group is to provide a forum for the community to participate in the fight against human trafficking/trading by supporting the work of the MHTTF.

Come join us and explore how you can take part!

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
