Shifting Culture

What is the root system of sexual exploitation? A society that facilitates it. If we want to live in a world where people aren’t sold for sex, then our hyper-sexualized society must be transformed—that’s how we can stop exploitation before it starts. Exodus Cry produces compelling films and media that offer powerful insight on misconceptions about exploitation.

Population(s) Served

Exodus Cry Intervention exists as a light in the dark places where sex trafficking and commercial sexual exploitation occur. The goal is to locate victims and to provide avenues of escape for those who are trapped and want a way out. Our intervention efforts occur in the Kansas City Metro area, across the United States, and around the world.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Educate members of U.S. and foreign governments about causes, trends and methods of combatting human trafficking and encourage them to enact and enforce laws that can help curb the demand that fuels human trafficking.

Research the root causes that create the demand for sex trafficking.

Inspire and educate others who will join in the effort to combat human trafficking.

Reach out to those who are being exploited and provide them with the means to escape the place of exploitation and begin the process of restoration.

Provide aftercare to those who are leaving exploitation so that they can become equipped to integrate into society as healthy and whole individuals.

Exodus Cry staff members will meet with government officials in the United States and abroad throughout the year to educate them on current trends in human trafficking that our staff members are witnessing as we engage in work with trafficking victims and law enforcement agencies and will urge them to pass laws that have proven to be effective in curbing the demand for commercial sex trafficking by placing an emphasis on prosecuting those who fuel demand for trafficking.

By establishing a team of researchers who will extrapolate data from various case studies, we hope to begin to more clearly identify what fuels the demand side of sex trafficking and how the demand can be curbed through legislation and cultural reform.

Exodus Cry will continue to inspire and educate others by conducting training seminars, hosting events and holding screenings of a documentary that Exodus Cry produced titled Nefarious: Merchant of Souls that has been utilized to raise awareness about global sex trafficking.

Exodus Cry Intervention Teams will carry out efforts in the Kansas City Metro, other U.S. cities and abroad to reach out to those who are currently being exploited or are considered to be at risk of exploitation and offer these individuals a means of escaping exploitation while working in cooperation with local, state and federal law enforcement agencies to help bring their exploiters to justice.

The Exodus Cry Restoration Division will provide aftercare services to those who have escaped exploitation. Aftercare services include: trauma therapy, medical care, social services, continued education, job skills training, life skills training and mentorship.

Exodus Cry employs staff members who hold Juris Doctor and Masters Degree in Public Diplomacy who are adept at working within the legal and political systems of the United States and other countries and have built a network of individuals who can help them to connect with government leaders around the world to effect change in their respective areas of influence. This team of professionals have the ability to pull from a great team of researchers who will assist in the various projects that they undertake.

Exodus Cry has conducted numerous domestic and international screening tours in which our staff of qualified professionals have conducted hundreds of events that have enabled us to inspire thousands of people to join in the effort to combat human trafficking. Because of this history of conducting events and building the necessary infrastructure to execute such events, Exodus Cry is in a unique position to continue to draw event attendees in the United States and abroad in order to create a ground swell of public sentiment that will stand against injustice.

Exodus Cry employs a fully equipped media department that is capable of creating feature length film projects that help to raise awareness of the issue of human trafficking and inspire people to become a part of the solution.

Exodus Cry Intervention Teams consist of over 20 individuals (some volunteers and some staff) who are committed to the work of building a bridge between those being exploited and a new life of freedom. The tools that they use consist of: state of the art facial recognition software that can help to identify missing/endangered individuals, a 24/7 hotline for those in the Kansas City Metro and a strong working relationship with local and federal law enforcement agencies.

Exodus Cry employs a staff of qualified therapists, social workers and other staff that help to provide the aftercare services that are required to make a positive impact on the life of an individual who has encountered exploitation and is seeking a place of refuge wherein the restoration process can be completed. We have also built a network of doctors and other service providers who offer services for free or at highly discounted rates to Exodus Cry so that we can offer our aftercare program to clients free of charge, including housing and all living expenses.

We have conducted an average of 120 events per year that are awareness focused. As a result we have been able to inform and inspire thousands of individuals to stand against exploitation.

Our Prevention team has held numerous meetings and debates with government officials around the world and have resulted in several laws being passed that help to curb the demand of trafficking and has prevented others from being passed that further legalize the exploitation of women and children in forms of prostitution.

We have had great success in intervention work both internationally and abroad. Recently, we were able to host a banquet for those being exploited through the avenue of the internet. This is typically hard to do because these women are often hidden out of public site and the only way to contact them is through direct phone contact, which is often times monitored by their trafficker. We had 15 women attend this event and our teams were able to begin building a relationship with them and offer them a way out of exploitation.
