What is #giveaflip?

#giveaflip is powered by Not In Our City.

Not In Our City began in 2015 when two moms in Katy,TX, discovered that children, just like theirs, were being sold for sex in their very own neighborhoods.  As they dove into research, they came into contact with victims, parents of victims, and activists around the country. It did not take long to uncover the full scope of domestic sex-trafficking and the gaps in the many efforts to end modern day slavery.  

Awareness and youth involvement quickly became key for prevention efforts.  Connecting activists and anti-trafficking organizations became crucial for recovering victims and for educating the public.  

Today, Not In Our City provides awareness events, educational material and experiences, and has built a network of resources.  The movement now consists of volunteers, whole communities, and a network of organizations and activists working together to fight the battle against this hidden and often misunderstood criminal atrocity.
