Hands and Feet
What makes Bikers Against Trafficking (BAT) unique is that we don’t simply talk about making a difference we MAKE a difference. We believe we are called to be the hands and feet of Jesus and we our passionate about what we do. Through our strategic partnerships and our volunteers, we are able to help extricate those stuck in the life, provide counseling, build awareness, supply resources, and provide housing for those who have survived being trafficked. We also have specialized partners that work behind the scenes to eliminate the demand side. We believe we are to make a difference by getting involved!
Get the Facts
Modern-day slavery, or human trafficking exists whenever people are bought and sold for forced labor, organs, forced marriage and commercial sex. Around the world, there are an estimated 40.3 million slaves today. Human sex trafficking has been reported in all provinces in Canada, all Countries in the world and in 50 U.S. states. The number of people being sex trafficked in the United States is estimated to be 1.5 million people as of today. Most who are trafficked in the US are US citizens, the average age is 11, and the average lifespan is 7 years (Canada is just now getting good stats but knows there are over 17,000 at present, 93% of who are Canadian citizens). According to UNICEF, every 2 minutes a child is taken into slavery around the world and in the United States we know that a child is taken into slavery every 2.5 hours (see our statistics and source page for more information).

Bikers are invaluable in the fight against this heinous crime. As the eyes and ears of our communities you are in a unique position to spot traffickers who seek to exploit human beings for sex and to see their victims and then DO something about it. We are forming Chapters around the world and seeking to build an army who want to do more than “talk” about things. A group of people who want to roll up their sleeves and make a difference.
