WHO WE ARE

Break These Chains Live Free™ (BTCLF), a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization, is dedicated to raising awareness of human trafficking issues, using non-traditional forms of communication including performance art, graphic art, and social media.   We are an all volunteer organization.  No salaries, no rent, no overhead. Donations and funds raised go directly to support the costs of hosting awareness events or monetary awards given in our student competitions.

 

HOW WE DO IT

We use symbolic dance, flash mobs, songs, dramatizations and other creative formats to illustrate the ugly truth about human trafficking – modern day slavery.

Our student competitions - “Human Trafficking – The Ugly Truth” - invite high school youth to think about and visualize the feelings of trafficked people, the reality of trafficking through art and photography.

Our Live Free® advocacy items - bracelets and bears - attract attention and invite conversations about trafficking.

 

OUR HISTORY

BTCLF was formed by four Soroptimist Clubs in Sourthern Nevada. Soroptimist is a global volunteer organization that provides women and girls with access to the education and training they need to achieve economic empowerment.
