O.U.R. Aftercare Director Jessica Mass and Railroad Run founder Josh Harrison were featured on Fox 13 Now Salt Lake City to talk about the event. Jessica Mass discusses how the O.U.R. Aftercare department works on long term care for survivors of trafficking. To date, O.U.R. has rescued 730 victims and assisted in the arrest of more than 365 traffickers. Mass says that with every arrest, 100-200 victims are prevented from ever being abused. See the full video.
Harrison expects there to be over 800 people at The Railroad Run on Saturday. We are grateful for all of the support we see daily in this fight against trafficking!
