OATH Mission

To prevent the exploitation of men, women and youth, by educating and promoting practical community engagement by Oregonians in order to end the tragedy of trafficking.

What is human trafficking?

Human trafficking is a terrible crime that exploits innocent and vulnerable people. It is one of the fastest-growing criminal industries in the world that involves the recruiting, transporting, selling, or buying of people for the purpose of various forms of exploitation. Trafficked persons are often controlled through force, fraud, or coercion.

HELP

If you are a victim of human trafficking or would like to report a tip regarding suspected human trafficking, call 911 in an emergency. If you have information regarding human trafficking which is not an emergency, would like more information about human trafficking or would like to learn about how you can help, call the toll-free National Hotline at 1-888-3737-888. Learn more about how to receive help or how to support others who need help.

OATH Vision Statement

Safe and healthy communities in Oregon that are free of exploitation and human trafficking.

Oregonians Against Trafficking Humans (OATH) was established in 2008 by the Multnomah County Sheriff’s Office to encourage citizens to “Take The Oath” to help combat the growing scourge of human trafficking within the state of Oregon.

The OATH campaign is the volunteer, public awareness, education and outreach branch of the Multnomah County Sheriff’s Office. OATH members recognize that human trafficking is a terrible crime that exploits innocent and vulnerable people locally and globally. By becoming an OATH member one agrees to learn, advocate and take practical action steps to stop human trafficking. Whether it is noticing a possible trafficking situation and calling the national human trafficking hotline (1-888-3737-888), or helping to plan a public awareness rally, OATH members pledge to take action in their community.

Oregonians Against Trafficking Humans invites you to use the resources on this website to create sustainable solutions to prevent people from being trafficked and create long term solutions to end it in our state.
