Greenlight Operation

We desire to see a world where human trafficking is disrupted and survivors are restored.

Lemoyne, PA   |  greenlightoperation.org

Mission

Our mission is to strategically combat human trafficking through educational initiatives and serve sex trafficked women through a continuum of restorative care.

Notes from the nonprofit

According to the National Human Trafficking Hotline, since 2007, over 150,000 victims of human trafficking have been identified in the United States. Of those identified, the vast majority of victims are women and girls who were coerced into sex trafficking and, once extracted, often lack trauma-informed services and long-term housing for their recovery. Furthermore, the majority of the public remains unaware or misinformed about the presence of this issue, how it harms those around us, and what we can practically do to address it. This is why Greenlight Operation exists—to strategically combat human trafficking through educational initiatives and serve survivors through a continuum of restorative care.

What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

Human trafficking is modern-day slavery. It's the use of force, fraud, or coercion to obtain some form of labor or commercial sex act—and it still exists today: Greenlight Operation exists to combat this pervasive crime. When our organization was established in 2018, we identified two areas of need in Pennsylvania. 1.Many people remain unaware of human trafficking. Human trafficking is the second largest criminal industry. However, if people do not know the issue exists in their communities, they will not take action to effectively combat it. 2.Survivors lack long-term housing. Sex trafficking is the most common form of slavery in Pennsylvania, bringing untold dangers and long-term trauma to victims. Despite this, there are not enough rehabilitative services or residential programs to serve the number of survivors there are.

Our programs

What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

Human Trafficking Education

People will not get involved with an issue they don’t know exists. Education about human trafficking is vital to combat misinformation, empower learners, and equip community members. The abolitionist movement grows when awareness spreads. This is why Greenlight Operation places such a high priority on our speaking engagements.
