Respect Our Daughters began as a campaign to stop violence against women in the state of Arizona. The campaign was started by formerly incarcerated men and women who desired to pay-it-forward in their communities. They began with writing, directing, and performing theatrical plays on college campuses and churches throughout Phoenix, Arizona to shed light on various topics which focused on violence against women.
As the team continued to research and prepare they discovered the ugly reality of sex trafficking through statistics and learning firsthand through survivors. In 2018, these men and women decided to to make the elimination of sex trafficking the sole objective of the Respect our Daughters campaign, and in April of 2019, the decision was made to turn the campaign into a nonprofit in order to launch a sustained attack against sex traffickers and those who would sell and purchase our children like commodities.
“Sex trafficking and mass rape should no more be seen as women's issues than slavery was a Black issue or the holocaust was a Jewish issue. These are all humanitarian concerns, transcending any one race, gender, or creed.”
― Nicholas D. Kristof and Sheryl WuDunn
