Welcome to our definition of collaboration; where hearts connect in the fight against human trafficking. We believe in the power of networking and collaboration to create a lasting impact. Today, you're here because you want to make a difference, join forces and be part of the solution. Together, we can tackle this horrible crime that preys on children. Let's explore how collective efforts and genuine connections can bring hope to those affected by human trafficking and lead us toward a brighter future.
Collaboration is crucial in the global fight against human trafficking, enabling organizations, activists, and communities to make a significant difference in combating this heinous crime. Addressing this complex issue requires collective action among various stakeholders. By connecting with like-minded individuals, organizations, and community leaders, we can amplify our impact and work towards eradicating human trafficking more effectively.
Here are five key areas of focus for Operation Rose:
Can we count on YOU to help spread the word?
1. Power of Collaboration:
In the recently released movie, Sound of Freedom, a haunting scene unfolds as local officials and "medical" doctors collaborate to access a private island in search of a missing little girl, amidst the bleak backdrop of darkness, rain, and desolation. The mere existence of a remote island housing countless children is tragic, but the unimaginable horrors taking place there make it even more harrowing. Shockingly, Americans rank as the #1 offenders in this heinous crime. We have the power to fight back by sharing this impactful movie with just one person. Together, we can make a difference and combat human trafficking. Who will you share it with?
2. Strength in Numbers:
Warning: The average age of entry into sex trafficking is between 12 and 14 years old, making young girls vulnerable targets. Educate yourself and loved ones about this grave issue. Human trafficking is prevalent in all 50 states, with the U.S. accounting for over 50% of global trafficking and traffickers making over $9.5 billion annually. This alarming reality demands immediate action. Sex trafficking is the most prevalent form in the U.S., and the COVID-19 pandemic heightened vulnerabilities, leaving individuals more susceptible to exploitation. These statistics underscore the urgent need for continued efforts to combat human trafficking and protect the most vulnerable in society. It's happening in your backyard. What will you do about it?
3. Sharing Knowledge and Resources:
At Operation Rose (supported by the Nashville Predators Foundation-GO PREDS!) we are committed to making a difference, one step at a time. By providing free workshops (WANT: Workshop Against Neighborhood Trafficking) in Nashville and surrounding areas, we empower hotels, schools, and neighborhoods with the knowledge to recognize and prevent trafficking. Collaboration is essential in this fight, and we are eager to partner with like-minded organizations and business owners dedicated to combating human trafficking.
You can join our cause by becoming a sponsor at our upcoming annual benefit dinner, where we will unite to raise awareness and share experiences, best practices, and innovative approaches. Together as a community, we will strengthen our collective understanding of human trafficking and refine our strategies to have a more effective and impactful impact. Let us stand together against human trafficking, rescuing the innocent and restoring hope for a better future. You can also get your tickets HERE. Join the movement to end human trafficking in Middle Tennessee and beyond. Together, we can make a difference and give hope to our future children.

4. Amplifying Impact:
At Operation Rose, we believe that making an impact can be as simple as sharing with one person. Whether it's gifting them a ticket to our annual dinner or a movie ticket to "The Sound of Freedom" through our pay-it-forward program, every action counts.
Our founder, Robert Young, alongside his team of experts, established Operation Rose with a clear mission: to combat human trafficking. Through their dedicated efforts, they successfully presented a resolution to the Metro Council that encourages all hotels to participate in our annual in-person workshops, offered completely free of charge. During these workshops, our experts lead hotel employees in recognizing the signs of trafficking and providing them with a clear process of how to handle such situations— empowering them with the critical principle: if you see something, say something. Together, we can create a safer community, and it all starts with sharing knowledge and taking action. Join us in this vital mission to combat human trafficking and protect the vulnerable.
5. Inspiring Change:
By fostering a collaborative spirit, we create a ripple effect beyond our immediate efforts, inspiring others to take action and work towards a world free from human trafficking.
