We helped conduct and deliver a state-wide community assessment across the Colorado Front Range — based on interviews, written reports, and data visualizations created alongside partnerships with hospitals, law enforcement agencies, municipal and county service providers, and local businesses to improve Colorado’s ability to combat human trafficking in the U.S. and around the world.
To accomplish this goal we, along with University of Colorado officials, Chiefs of Police, doctors, social workers, and business owners, assessed the role their respective institutions play in detecting, reporting, and responding to instances of trafficked persons in their community.
Colorado is one of the most popular landing destinations for people who have been trafficked from all over the world. We feel it is up to all of us to intervene and respond in any way we can. To get involved in this effort directly, we played a supporting role in conducting the community needs assessment interviews, produced concepts and visuals for the report, and helped deliver the report to stakeholders across Colorado and the United States.
