Why Cities?


Cities are hubs of innovation and influence, where the ideas, policies and products that shape the broader culture are first born.

Why Cities?


Cities are hubs of innovation and influence, where the ideas, policies and products that shape the broader culture are first born.

Today, 54 percent of the world’s population lives in urban areas. The UN claims that the number of people living in cities will double by 2050. In the US, more than 80 percent of people already call a city their home.

you could argue that as cities go, so goes the world. 

So What if our cities became places where traffickers couldn't exploit the vulnerable and where survivors could truly heal?
