We are shifting pieces of our culture that allow exploitation to flourish toward a strong culture of intolerance of exploitation – toward Collective Liberty for all of us.

Based on our data, human trafficking is most prevalent in California, Texas, Florida, and the Northeastern United States. This was the basis of our decision to prioritize those regions first. We have trained officers in over 200 agencies across those states, equipping them with data and best practices for combatting human trafficking: the most important practice being to stop arresting potential victims. To that end we have supported culture shifts in those agencies as they closed over 1,000 trafficking venues, focused on investigating the exploiters.

Additionally, a shift toward financial crimes, which limits the need for survivor engagement in the criminal justice process, has been a focus. When building financial crimes cases, the criminal behavior, financial fraud, and other forms of official, documented cri...
We are shifting pieces of our culture that allow exploitation to flourish toward a strong culture of intolerance of exploitation – toward Collective Liberty for all of us.

Based on our data, human trafficking is most prevalent in California, Texas, Florida, and the Northeastern United States. This was the basis of our decision to prioritize those regions first.

To that end we have supported culture shifts in those agencies as they closed over 1,000 trafficking venues, focused on investigating the exploiters.

Additionally, a shift toward financial crimes, which limits the need for survivor engagement in the criminal justice process, has been a focus. When building financial crimes cases, the criminal behavior, financial fraud, and other forms of official, documented criminal violations, prove the case. This means survivors need not even participate in the traumatizing criminal justice process if they are not emotionally able. Thus, this form of investigation centers the needs of the victims. To that end, over 4,000 of the investigators we have trained are from financial institutions. We’ve partnered with three global financial agencies to share data to improve the accuracy of their internal typologies for identifying exploitation. Accenture Global Consulting is assisting with us with going to market with a fee-for-service model for the financial sector, who has expressed interest in having access to our data and intelligence to assist with their anti-money laundering efforts. This model will assist with diversifying our income, where the corporate contracts help subsidize our work with government, non-profit, and the general public markets.

We have supported the passage of over 35 laws across the nation, been called on to support the development of the Department of Transportation Human Trafficking Strategy and annual report, supported and reviewed multiple senate and house bills, and assisted with the development of data-driven and survivor inclusive state task forces. Our CEO, Rochelle Keyhan, is recommended word of mouth and we no longer have to offer our services as people seek us out and request training, support mobilizing groups and actions, and expert testimony or review.

Recommendations

To Whom It May Concern,

It is my great pleasure to recommend Collective Liberty for the startup program with F6S.

As the founding board chair for Collective Liberty I am fully committed to the sustainability, and ultimate expansion of the organization. Collective Liberty represents the ability to cut through the bureaucracy and limited technological expertise of existing legal (criminal and civil) systems that are currently attempting to tackle the organized criminal networks of human traffickers.

Furthermore, with its wealth of subject matter experts (consultants, staff, and board) and partnerships with technology experts such as GoFundMe and ThetaRay (AI experts), Collective Liberty is poised to be able to develop revenue-earning trainings and consultancy. Specifically for major global systems such as hotel/hospitality, financial institutions, and social media.

Partnership with F6S will help guide Collective Liberty in developing its revenue arm and crafting sustainable growth.
