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.

Social Impact and Entertainment Event - Human Trafficking and Gun Violence in Philadelphia, PA August 26, 2023 3:00pm - 7:00pm
Price Wharton (Mr. P), a well-known community activist in the West Philadelphia area is concerned about the amount of human trafficking and gun violence incidents that have occurred in Philadelphia. Throughout recent years, Mr. P has seen a number of egregious activity on the streets of Philly and feels compelled to address the issue by bringing music, entertainment, and education together at the same event.
“Many people see it, but they don't want to acknowledge that they see it,” says Bev Chandran Founder of Women Against Human Trafficking. “But in reality, we can't afford to keep looking the other way when it comes to the most vulnerable of our community; women and children whether it be trafficking or gun violence.” Mr. P noted that “each of us has the capacity to do something about these social ills within our own means,” which has sparked a fire in him to take action and initiate the first of many events designed to bring entertainment and social issues together. In this spirit, on Saturday, August 26th from 3:00pm - 7:00pm 2023 A.C.E. EVENTS will combine music, entertainment, food, and an educational forum about the impact of human trafficking and gun violence in the Philadelphia area.
