This spring, ECPAT-USA, the country’s leading anti-child trafficking organization, will host its second annual Freedom Awards celebration to honor leaders in the fight to end child trafficking and exploitation.


The event on May 22, 2019 will bring together a highly selective group of 200 luminaries in the corporate, philanthropic, government, and media communities in support of ECPAT-USA’s vital work to ensure no child is bought or sold.

In what will be the highlight of the evening, ECPAT-USA will grant awards to the world’s most remarkable individuals for their contributions in ending child trafficking.
