Together, as a community, we were able to bring awareness to the prevalence of human trafficking, as well as educate the public on the warning signs of human trafficked victims. The proceeds from the fundraiser were distributed to the local nonprofits to further their important work in helping to end human trafficking.
Check back for info on the next Light Up The Night event! We will continue to update this website and our Facebook page with a schedule of events and other information! So check back and we will see you there, friends!
The mission of the Pasco Sheriff's Office Light Up the Night Tampa Bay event is to bring awareness and education to all the surrounding areas of Tampa Bay about the perils of men, women, and children enslaved through the heinous acts of human trafficking. It is our desire to completely eradicate this modern-day form of slavery, where victims are exploited for commercial sex, forced labor, or involuntary servitude to line the pockets of traffickers and this BILLION-dollar industry! With community support and sponsorship, we will continue to provide resources to organizations which house, clothe, and help victims escape, as well as, provide fundamental daily living skills. To light up the night, so each victim can find their way home - until they have ALL been freed.
With January being Human Trafficking Awareness Month, here are the activities you can look forward to
