The mission of Freedom Ladder is to stop child sex trafficking by interrupting a culture that sexualizes children and regards the human body as a commodity, and to transform that culture into one that treats all people with honor and respect. Freedom Ladder uses popular vehicles of education and entertainment, such as comic books, to educate at-risk children about the danger of sex trafficking and empower them to protect themselves and live lives of courage, power, and inspiration.
