Who We Are and What We're Doing

Welcome to United Against Contemporary Trafficking (U-ACT)'s blog. As stated in the blog's title, U-ACT is a grassroots organization that supports and assists local and international individuals and organizations in their fight against human trafficking. U-ACT was founded in August 2009 and is based in Indianapolis, Indiana. This blog will be updated regularly with links to online articles and videos pertaining to national and international human trafficking and will also be a convenient way to provide both members and non-members information about upcoming events and meetings.

Although we are a newly formed organization, we are already working to fight human trafficking in eight 'action areas.' Our 'action areas' currently include the following: legislative representatives, facebook group page, this blog, Craiglist flaggers, free2work researchers, fundraising team, community awareness team, and a resource update team. If you are interested in learning more about any of these action areas and how you can be involved, please contact us at uact.indy@yahoo.com.

Our meetings are scheduled for the third Monday of each month at 7 p.m. in the Common Grounds Coffee Cafe at the Friedens United Church of Christ (8300 South Meridian Street) in Indianapolis, Indiana. Our next meeting is Monday, September 21st at 7 p.m.
