Here’s a little bit about the mission of Stop the Movement

Stop the Movement is an anti-trafficking awareness community. We are friends on purpose. We exist to bring awareness, prevention and education about the reality of human trafficking to the Tampa Bay Area. We believe that an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. Live trainings, self defense classes, internet safety and major events are just a few ways we are involved in Tampa Bay
