Welcome to the People Against Trafficking Humans Now (P.A.T.H. Now) Global website, where we strive to educate and prevent human trafficking within the United States and throughout the world.
P.A.T.H Now Global is a Rescue and Restore partner with the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. We are privileged to have this opportunity to assist in helping end human trafficking. More information on human trafficking can be found here.
We at PATH Now Global have made it our sole purpose to develop public awareness campaigns to educate and prevent human trafficking, and assist in the rescuing the victims of human trafficking on both a local, national and global level by providing the necessary resources to other organizations, law enforcement and government entities, by providing the basic resources to these organizations. We feel that every human being deserves the right to live their life as they choose, rather than have that decision made for them. Wherever there is a need or injustice, PATH Now Global will offer its time, resources and expertise, regardless of economic status or affiliation.
