Greenlight Operation began with a need and a passion for change.
In 2017, Pennsylvania was already a well-known hotspot for modern day slavery, with its vast roadways connecting major cities in the Northeast. While there were opportunities to learn about the issue and raise awareness, a growing group of people wanted to become personally involved locally. Year-round. Boots-on-the-ground. But the reality was, few practical volunteer opportunities existed because service providers for trafficking victims are shockingly scarce and offer few tangible avenues to help.
The need for change was obvious, as was the potential activist network.
In May of 2018, it was finally time to step out and become part of the solution, which meant creating and running with an anti-human trafficking model that didn’t exist in the Greater Harrisburg Area.
Greenlight Operation was born.
