6th Annual Night of Hope 6

Take a Stand

Not In Our City is a Community-Centered Coalition United Against Human Trafficking in Arizona

We unite local and federal law enforcement, legislators, city officials, front-line organizations, schools and faith communities to educate and equip the public to fight Human Trafficking.

Our Mission

To educate and equip communities with practical tools to stand against the evil of Human Trafficking. We are a diverse coalition, determined to protect the vulnerable, and seek justice and restoration for survivors. We will shine a light in the darkness, and we will not turn a blind eye.
Human Trafficking will not be tolerated-- NOT IN OUR CITY.

Our Vision

To see all 91 City Jurisdictions in the State of Arizona commit to meeting the needs of the community by affecting and enforcing strict policies to prevent Human Trafficking, and proclaim January as Anti-Human Trafficking Month.

We urge officials to ensure communities are provided with the necessary training and resources required to prevent the spread of trafficking, recover and rehabilitate victims, and apprehend and convict perpetrators.

Our victories

In 2019, our journey began with uniting elected officials, law enforcement, faith communities, and front-line organizations to raise awareness in the east valley. Each year, we have increased our territory and our impact.

In 2023, Not In Our City volunteers influenced eleven cities to sign proclamations prioritizing the fight against Human Trafficking, and designate January as Anti-Human Trafficking Month. Our combined efforts inspired the City of Chandler to allocate two million dollars toward the fight in Chandler.

Volunteers also partnered with local law enforcement to locate and rescue 30 children listed on the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children. Finally, NIOC increased visibility and volunteerism for 15 front-line organizations that provide shelter, counseling and other vital resources to rescue and restore victims. And we're just getting started...

We Believe Every Person Has the Power to Do Something to Stop Human Trafficking.

NIOC educates and equips communities with practical tools to take a unified stand against the evil of Human Trafficking in the state of Arizona.

...He said he loved her. So, she ran away with him.

Once isolated from family and friends, the relationship became abusive. Amy was raped and became pregnant. When she turned 18, her boyfriend turned “business manager” gave her an ultimatum: sell her body or he would sell the baby.

"Javier"

moved in with his grandmother after his mother died. Struggling to adjust to a new high school, he spent most of his time in chat rooms. After several lonely months, he got a direct message from an online friend inviting him to a party. Javier went to the party, and without question, accepted the drink he was handed. Sometime later, he woke, disorientated and surrounded by unknown men. One of the men held Javier’s phone and a gun. He pulled up a picture of Javier’s grandmother, and waved the gun at the photo, saying if Javier didn’t do what he was told, they would kill her.
