Since 2010, Free-Them has become one of the most established and authoritative voices on the issue of human trafficking in North America and has helped fund rescue efforts for hundreds of victims.
Free-Them is a stakeholder in the federal government, provincial government of Ontario and Toronto’s municipal government, including three federal bills that have amended the Criminal Code of Canada and the federal government’s National Action Plan to Combat Human Trafficking. Free-Them is regularly called upon by various local and national media outlets for expertise on human trafficking and specific cases.
The experience of Shae’s efforts and good works are not limited or confined to any one region or nation. She is more than happy to give advice to those who may feel inspired to take up and promote this very serious cause within their own home town or perhaps even within their own life, wherever that may be.”
