SAFE Coalition for Human Rights is a nonprofit registered with the Illinois Secretary of State in March 2014. SAFECHR was formed to support the objectives of SAFE 2014 Conference : Sex-Trafficking Awareness, Freedom, and Empowerment (SAFE). The team is entirely made up of volunteers donating their time, energies, and commitment to making our citizen-driven, survivor-driven conference a success.

SAFECHR was born when a group of survivors attended a conference in November and shared their stories creating an impetus that their experiences and lack of wrap around services needed to fuel debate and discussion on how we can create a bridge from victim to survivor, from insensitivity to creative awareness, and from successful trafficker to incarcerated criminal.

Since January 2014, the volunteer committee has worked together to gather a diverse group of professionals to come together to find solutions and develop a working global task force that meets each month to implement these findings.

HISTORY

SAFECHR was born when a group of survivors attended a conference in November 2013 to present in a room with very few professionals. On one side of the wall at the convention center was a large and lively group of football moms and kids, and across the hallway a very well attended HIPPA education. The survivors were sad, we took them to lunch and promised them that although a few people heard their stories, we would hold a larger conference so that the entire world would hear their voices. They shared their stories creating an impetus that their experiences and lack of wrap around services needed to fuel debate and discussion on how we can create a bridge from victim to survivor, from insensitivity to creative awareness, and from trafficker to arrested criminal.

On March 5, 2014, SAFECHR was born after we repeatedly attempted to find a fiscal sponsor for our global conference but were met with unrealistic demands. By December 2014, SAFECHR had obtained 501 C3, status with tremendous support from the community, IRS, and others to make SAFE 2014: First Annual Global Conference the success it was. Out of it was born a paradigm shift in the way we conduct conferences on human trafficking.
