A client of the University of Wyoming’s business incubator for just under a year has been searching for the solution to accelerate the end of human trafficking nationwide. According to a release from the University, the Alliance for Freedom, Restoration, and Justice has been shining a light on the problem of human trafficking, which is estimated to be a $150 billion industry annually. This UW housed business launched the Every Day Heroes Challenge last month to engage everyday people to become heroes against this scourge through the completion of a one-hour online course.

The campaign seeks to get 1 million people to take the free offering thereby earning their online Human Trafficking Awareness badge so citizens can move from awareness to action. This course will give people the knowledge to spot signs of the crime.
