what is it?
3Strands Global Foundation mobilizes communities to combat human trafficking through the Break Free Run and other hosted events. The Break Free Run raises awareness and engages individuals in the fight against human trafficking; this is our largest event of the year. We host Break Free Runs in Folsom, California once a year. The Virtual Runner option allows anyone, anywhere to be a part of the Race to End Human Trafficking.
We believe political advocacy is a critical part of ending the exploitation of individuals and addressing the preventative measures that can be taken to decrease the vulnerability of children and young adults. We believe in the power of our voice and aim to provide opportunities for people to engage their political leaders through a number of grassroots efforts.
Our co-sponsored bill, AB 1227, The Human Trafficking Prevention Education and Training Act was signed into law on October 7th, 2017. This law requires Prevention Education to be taught in California Schools and makes California a national and global leader in the fight against human trafficking.

Real stories of impact
Two brothers signed up to run the Break Free Run in September, and were excited to participate. About halfway through, the younger brother got tired and said he couldn't run any further. The older brother then put him on his back, grabbed his jacket, and took off to finish the race. He ran about a mile and a half with his brother on his back, and they crossed the finish line together.
