Mission & Vision
RAASE seeks to end the demand for sexually exploited individuals through preventative measures, survivor protection, accountability of violators, and community engagement.
If you are being exploited, pimped or trafficked and want help, call the National Human Trafficking Hot Line at the 24/7 Hotline 888-373-7888.
We are an organization that works to change our community's perception and definition of sexual exploitation. Sexual exploitation is defined as someone, through the use of coercion, force or manipulation benefits financially from the sexual sale of another person. A pimp or a handler of prostituted persons and a strip club manager that benefits from dancers working and offering themselves for sale are considered traffickers. Local lingerie stores that do not really sell lingerie but offer sexual services are simply modern day brothels. Sexual exploitation is a crime. There are survivors. RAASE, Inc. wants to change the community's perception of the crimes, protect those survivors of sexual exploitation, and hold the violators accountable.
