The mission of the Women Against Human-Trafficking in Philadelphia (#WAHTPhilly) is to bring consistent social media and exposure to human and sex trafficking as well as provide an avenue for females to learn how to prevent and/or protect themselves from becoming a victim. In addition, we provide on-line trainings that focus on women 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.

Judge Lori A, Dumas is doing her part to prevent sex and human trafficking in the City of Philadelphia...
Until we get more organized around changing the laws and voting for judges who have the experience and passion to fight against sex and human trafficking, "once a victim, always a victim" will be the mantra that rings true for the children, women, and boys who get caught up in this horrible dilemma.
Honorable Lori A. Dumas, Judge, Court of Common Pleas, in Philadelphia County has served in the First Judicial District since 2002. Judge Dumas’ commitment to children and families is personified through her tireless efforts on and off the Bench. Judge Dumas has been assigned to preside over many specialized court programs; but the one of which she is most proud, is the human trafficking pilot program of the Philadelphia Family Court, which she created to address the significant needs of children who have been commercially sexually exploited. She has worked tirelessly to build a “Dream Team” of professionals who recognize the complexities of these children’s situations in order to provide them the holistic and restorative treatment that they deserve as victims. Judge Dumas has developed a human trafficking pilot program that trains police officers to fight against this growing social pandemic.
Judge Lori Dumas, a woman, and mother is running for Commonwealth Court of PA in May 2021. We need Judge Dumas to WIN so that victims of sex and human trafficking will have a strong advocate in and out of the court system.
