Partners Against Trafficking Humans (PATH) is an organization that helps victims of human trafficking. Many people fail to realize that human trafficking is a ubiquitous issue not only overseas but here in Arkansas as well. Estimates show that between 100,000-300,000 children are trafficked in the US alone. PATH advocates in helping the victims by rescuing them, providing temporary housing, and assisting in recovery. With such a widespread issue PATH is a perfect choice for this month’s Difference Makers award.
The Difference Makers award is in conjunction with the Victory Over Violence campaign launched by KARK Channel 4 and Fox 16. Once a month, Rainwater, Holt & Sexton presents a $1,000 donation to an organization that is fighting violence in the community and has established themselves as a true Difference Maker. The partnership goal is to create a safer Central Arkansas by uniting community groups that are promoting change through improvements in education, jobs, mentoring, and hunger.
