S.O.A.P. (Save Our Adolescents from Prostitution)
S.O.A.P. stands for 'Save Our Adolescents from Prostitution' and is a hands-on outreach to fight sex trafficking at large events & in communities.
S.O.A.P. was founded by author, advocate, & survivor- Theresa Flores
On her worst night, after being auctioned off to nearly two dozen men in a dingy, dirty, inner city Detroit motel, Ms. Flores recalled the only item that would have reached out to her, a bar of soap. With that in mind, she created S.O.A.P.-Save Our Adolescents from Prostitution, to help reach out to other victims.
Mission: to rescue victims being trafficked at hotels, to provide victims a number to call for help, to educate motels and hotels on the signs of trafficking and to mobilize volunteers on a human trafficking outreach.
S.O.A.P. National travels all over the U.S. to hold outreaches during large events. We partner with local organizations to distribute millions of bars of soap wrapped with a red band that gives the National Human Trafficking Hotline number, (888.3737.888) and resources to high-risk motels.
Trained vyholunteers help us offer the soap free of charge to motels along with training to be able to identify and report sex trafficking when they see it in their establishments. S.O.A.P. events are scheduled for high-demand events like the Super Bowl, NCAA Final Four, Indy 500 and many more!
