Human Trafficking is the 2nd leading crime in the world....and in the U.S!
With over 100,000 children being trafficked nationwide and over 1 million missing and runaway youth, S.O.A.P.needs your help to rescue these young victims.
Metro Detroit S.O.A.P.(Save Our Adolescents from Prostitution) will team up for its 6th Detroit Auto Show Outreach, with local organizations to educate hotels on the red flags, mobilize volunteers to help label bars of motel soap with the national human trafficking hotline number and pass out missing children posters just before the Auto Show comes to Detroit.
We need YOUR help!
