If We Want To, We Can
Jerry Redman Anti-Trafficking Crusader
Although the issue of sex trafficking has received major focus over the last decade, the idea of ending the crime is something that has received little attention, at least not in ways that are strategic and time-sensitive. Jerry Redman tells us specifically how we can end sex trafficking in Chattanooga in a way that transcends just hope and idealism. While measurability and strategy are key to this work, the belief that we can and will do it remains vital.
Jerry Redman is Co-Founder and CEO of Second Life, Inc., a Chattanooga-based non-profit organization that fights sex trafficking. He serves as liaison with the various law-enforcement and governmental agencies with which Second Life partners.
Redman chairs the Executive Committee of the Chattanooga Coalition Against Human Trafficking, as well as sits on the Tennessee Governor’s Human Trafficking Advisory Council. He is working on the development and implementation of the Global Trafficking Initiative, a comprehensive, collaborative approach to addressing the issue of trafficking in both the U.S. and internationally.
