Iowa Network Against Human Trafficking and Slavery

Our first nominated and selected GiveIowa organization of 2021 is the Iowa Network Against Human Trafficking and Slavery (NAHT). Like most non-profit organizations, NAHT has no staff on a payroll, all work is done by volunteers, and all donations are directed straight to fund anti-trafficking awareness and prevention. The Iowa Network Against Human Trafficking and Slavery (NAHT) was Iowa’s first and remains the only statewide volunteer organization devoted exclusively to ending human trafficking in all its forms. The NAHT believes that human trafficking is modern day slavery where vulnerable people are forced or coerced into involuntary servitude for the purpose of financial profit for traffickers. NAHT’s mission is to coordinate Iowa’s solution to end human trafficking through coalition building, raising awareness, promoting education, advocating for effective prevention, intervention, rescue, and recovery services and effective legislation and public policy. The NAHT has several ways for individuals to become involved in the organization and their efforts during the month of January. View the live Iowa’s Freedom Summit seminar on January 12th from 11:30AM – 1PM featuring six guest speakers from various aspects of the fight against human trafficking. Join NAHT on January 14th at the Iowa State Capital Building Rotunda as Governor Kim Reynolds reaffirms Iowa’s dedication to fighting human trafficking by signing a proclamation declaring January to be Slavery and Human Trafficking Prevention Month. Lastly, on January 28th, you can listen in as Luana Nelson-Brown discusses ending the demand for human trafficking through the lens of racial justice in the Zoom presentation, “Race Matters: Confronting the Roots of Human Trafficking.” More information can be found at: iowanaht.org/events. Don't forget the first $250 of donations will be matched dollar for dollar by Greater Iowa Credit Union!
