The mission of the Women Against Human-Trafficking in Philadelphia (#WAHTPhilly) is to offer women a safe space to learn how to protect themselves from becoming a victim of inner city crime. We provide in-person and on-line trainings that focus on effective self-defense strategies, empowerment seminars, and wellness solutions.
Welcome to #WAHTPhilly
Our activities provide a safe space where people are invited to spread the word about current abductions and join the conversation about Human Trafficking.
WAHT offers well-being forums, workshops, and defense training, partnering with our affiliates who offer a variety of services. In addition, we offer public relations crisis management and marketing.
If you know of a person who has been kidnapped into the "LIFE" please feel free to share with us.
When a person goes missing you should contact your local police, contact the U.S. National Human Trafficking Hotline by calling 1-888-373-7888 (TTY:711), by texting “BeFree” (233733), via live chat or email. Services are available toll-free 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
Please note, that contacting your local police is "not" enough, you must contact the national hotline so that the information is logged into the national database. For example, Philadelphia, PA has a Homeland Security Human Trafficking Unit with trained officers. If you call the local police for an H.T. issue make sure you ask to speak with an officer that is trained in human trafficking, as it can make a difference in the results obtained.

1st Annual Women Empowerment and Legacy Event March 19, 2022 1:30pm - 3:30pm Click here to register for FREE event.
Join us for the First Annual event to honor trailblazer Dr. Renee Reynolds Lawson, Ms. Classic Universe 2021-2022. This event will serve as a catalyst to transfer Dr. Lawson’s knowledge and empowerment to women of all walks-of-life who are seeking tools and connections to live their best life every step of the way.
Dr. Renee Reynolds Lawson was a victim turned victor of domestic abuse as well as an ambassador for Women Against Human and Sex Trafficking. Her commitment to WAHTPhilly was to provide education and awareness around domestic violence, rape, sexual abuse, and sex and human trafficking at public events. We agreed that "Until females of all ages are taught how to prevent themselves from falling victim to these life-threatening egregious acts against them, we will continue to be victimized in huge numbers around the world.” This event will offer current information and resources on how to protect females from being a victim of violence, as well as offer confidence and self-esteem building techniques that are useful in daily life regardless of age.
