Behind the Scenes
We started with a goal to raise money for anti trafficking causes - to help others nonprofits. But God had a plan for Go Against Traffick to go all in. He wanted us to take part in this fight by carving out a crucial piece of what is needed to end this $32 billion criminal industry...human trafficking. Our task is to address it at a community level. April Brass has been living in Northeast Georgia and raising her family here since 2010. With 25 + years in marketing and business development, 15+ years in nonprofit work and 10+ years in event management, our founder has been preparing for this her whole life.
