What is the 2021 Initiative?
The TMC family selected Operation Underground Railroad (O.U.R.) as our 2021 Together Making Changes charitable organization of the year! O.U.R. has made a significant impact in the fight to end sex trafficking and sexual exploitation by rescuing and supporting thousands of survivors in
28 countries and 26 U.S. states.
O.U.R. was founded in December 2013 by Tim Ballard (former Department of Homeland Security Agent) and named Operation Underground Railroad after the network of secret routes and safe houses established in the United States during the early-mid-19th century. The railroads were used by African American slaves to escape into free states and Canada with the aid of abolitionists and allies. Their mission is to shine a light worldwide on the global epidemic of child sex trafficking, and in so doing rescue more children from slavery and assist law enforcement to seek justice for those who violate children. They place survivors on a path to recovery by partnering with vetted aftercare providers.
O.U.R. is privately owned and operated, giving them the ability to identify, plan, and complete extractions more quickly. They have formed long-term relationships with domestic and foreign governments, providing software and training to serve as a working model for addressing and ending sex slavery and tourism.
