OUR VISION

Imagine a world without child trafficking and exploitation.

​PACT works to bring awareness, advocacy and teach all people regardless of gender, religion, sexual orientation or otherwise. Our work is based on extensive research and then leveraging those voices of the vulnerable in developing programs that provide relevant prevention solutions to all the members of our community

OUR MISSION

​​Our Mission is to empower students through peer-to-peer communications to detect, defend and disrupt against predators in their own environment and bring awareness to adults to stop the demand.


​NOT ONE MORE VICTIM

OUR APPROACH

Our public health approach to child trafficking and exploitation leverages the most up-to-date research to define the underlying issues, understand the risks and the costs, and initiate prevention strategies that engage the entire community.  By raising awareness, preventing victimization and reducing the demand we expect to achieve our vision.

OUR STORY

PACT is recognized as the educational platform for Rotary Club to End Human Trafficking (RCEHT) an international club, to further the mission to end human trafficking across the globe.

PACT is a 501(c)3 organization under EIN #47-4236781.

 

 

The inspiration of what would develop and grow into the empowering force known as Partners Against Child Trafficking, began in September of 2014. PACT’s founder, Rick Naylor, witnessed an eye-opening experience that would give him a calling to STOP child sex trafficking. He decided that in order to fight against trafficking, he would create an organization that focused on prevention instead of victim services, in order to stop trafficking before it could even happen.

 

Thus, PACT’s mission of NOT ONE MORE VICTIM was born.

 

Over the years, PACT has been built solidly on the diligent research of real-world information from intelligence reports, clinical specialists, counselors, state local and justice system leaders, nonprofit ministries, national and international corporations, and finally, the personal testimony of trafficking victims. The initial research and foundation-building took almost an entire year, but in June 2015, after submitting the paperwork to the Federal government, PACT became a registered 501.c3. God was leading the way!

 

 The summation of the research and approach methodology was to first develop a “PACT Continuum of Care Model” that became instrumental in the overall business plan. The issue that became clear was that there was clearly a lack of global, let alone local, awareness and or tangible knowledge or actions to execute corrective action. In fact, most people interviewed didn’t want to either hear about it or know about child sex trafficking. Child sex trafficking is not in everyday conversations, let alone the dinner table. It was taboo. “It doesn’t happen here, not in our backyard. Not relevant to me.”

 

 However, if parents and adults didn’t want to talk about it or hear about it, then who would? The most effective solution was staring at us all along - our children, after all, that is where the vulnerability age lies. But how can you get children to talk about an “adult issue?” The most important asset we have in the world today is our children. Our children are also students, the ground zero of peer-to-peer communications. The students are exactly where the vision of hope is centered by providing them a platform of factual information that their parents don’t or won’t talk about. The PACT platform was empowering to the students, and they were in charge of their own destinies by thwarting the efforts of predators by teaching each how to Detect, Defend and Disrupt the predators. This goal became a living and actionable reality in the form of PACT’s Student Training Programs that were originally developed by a group of High School students who banded together to turn PACT’s research on trafficking prevention into an active, online training on topics like risk factors, warning signs, and safe ways to fight trafficking. Prevention became more than just an idea, and NOT ONE MORE VICTIM became a battle cry.
