Run Against Traffick

Run Against Traffick 5K Run/Walk fundraiser that supports Spoken For of Albuquerque, confronting human trafficking issues in New Mexico

Run Against Traffick was started by Spoken For of Albuquerque, a non-profit, volunteer based organization dedicated to the aftercare and advocacy of formerly trafficked individuals in New Mexico. Our goals are two-fold: increased awareness and the prevention of human trafficking, and helping victims who have survived this trauma heal and find hope for a future by becoming leaders and advocates. Through Spoken For we are actively educating New Mexicans through awareness campaigns, creating compelling dialog about human trafficking, modern day slavery, and how to be part of the solution. These awareness campaigns focus on the University of New Mexico campus, Albuquerque Public School peer initiatives and the Albuquerque tourism and local hospitality industry during the New Mexico State Fair and Balloon Fiesta. Spoken for is currently helping victims and working with survivors of human trafficking by partnering with The Life Link in Santa Fe, the New Mexico Attorney General's office, the Albuquerque Police Department, Mayor Berry's anti- human trafficking task force and the New Mexico Coalition to End Human Trafficking.
