Uprising recognizes that every individual, business, and organization can add a lot to this fight. The more connections we make, the stronger our safety nets are within our communities. These are some of the amazing people we have been fortunate to collaborate with and they have supported us through donations, hosting events and hosting training or presentations.
Our partnership with Uprising has been one of the most productive and amazing relationships we maintain at Compass. Being a team and working together like we do only means more support, more advocacy and more prevention work to protect vulnerable victims of crime. We couldn’t be more proud to be associated with the team at Uprising! Susan Carr – Executive Director/Compass Center for Families
“The Sheridan County Sheriff’s Office is fortunate to collaborate with Uprising and our staff has benefited immensely from their strong grass roots effort to bring awareness to human trafficking. We appreciate their work in educating the public and giving a voice to those in need.” -Sheriff Allen Thompson
Human trafficking is modern day slavery that impacts our entire nation. Locating and identifying the victims of human trafficking and providing them with the proper resources to recover from their trauma is priority number one. The interdiction and prosecution of the criminals who exploited these victims is just as important. Providing the proper education and training to law enforcement and members of the public is essential so everyone can do their part to help eliminate this heinous exploitation of human beings. If you see something that appears suspicious, make the call to your local law enforcement and do your part to help save lives. – Captain Wagener
“With the scarcity of resources for victims and survivors in rural areas The Avery Center is proud to partner with Uprising Wyoming and the important work they are doing. We share the importance of survivor leadership and highlight the role research plays in educating communities, partners, and stakeholders in our effort to end commercial sexual exploitation and trafficking.” -DANIEL EASTMAN
We are proud to have partnered with SAGE Community Arts on several projects recently. We were honored to partner with them to host a Red Sand Project at Sheridan College. Another project focuses on creating safe, engaging spaces for youth by cohosting a Youth Open Mic Night. And an ongoing project in the works is a Survivor Art Series, that helps bring human trafficking and trauma survivors to our community to host art workshops and a planned trauma survivor art show in 2023.
