Digging Deep in the Classroom

It can be difficult running a faith-based nonprofit that does most of its ministry in the public school system. We are oftentimes faced with the challenge of figuring out how to say things in a way that won't get us kicked out, aka seem like we're preaching at the students. We dance in this tension [...]

Reach Out: Super Bowl 2016

The way God brings people together for ministry is absolutely amazing to me! Meeting FREE International and the rest of Blitz the Trafficker team has given us so many blessings this last year! We were stoked to make it out to Super Bowl again to look for missing/exploited children. (For the full scoop on our [...]

Negotiation: it gets you what you really want

Red Light Rebellion works to prevent sex trafficking from happening to young people. We do this through many different avenues, one of which is spreading the word in classroom settings at Jr High and High Schools. Most schools are apprehensive when we approach them about coming on campus for presentations. Their concerns stem from sex [...]

Cactus High School Classroom Presentations

The classroom presentations have already started for the year! This is our third semester at Cactus High School presenting to Law Enforcement and Social Justice classes. Most of the students are interested in a career in law enforcement in one form or another. We have started to introduce an action item specific to these classes, [...]

Going To Jail

I arrived and was immediately instructed to put any personal items or items that can be turned into weapons in a locker before security opened the door. Apparently anything can be turned into a weapon. (Just kidding, I already knew that - that Mexican blood runs deep!) Any noise that was made echoed throughout the [...]

Epic Photo Shoot

I love the way God uses people. I love when He puts the same things on peoples' hearts so they can come together for His glory. That's what happened with my college buddy, Brianna. We were roommates freshmen year at ASU - yes they stuck two girls with the same name in the same room. [...]

5 Day RLR Presentations @SDOHS

The last half of 2015, we have been very prayerful about God opening new doors for RLR programs to reach more students. It is always exciting when He does! He has given us a lot of favor with Sandra Day O'Connor High School, and they allowed us to try out our new 5-day classroom presentation [...]

RAT Race 2015!!

The Run Against Trafficking (RAT) Race this year was quite the success!! Hundreds showed up to walk or run the benefit 5k to raise awareness about sex trafficking and support all the anti-trafficking organizations in the Valley! This year Red Light Rebellion's team had 40 people on it (half of those being high school students) [...]

Say Something Assembly in Northern California!

All last week Brandon and I were in Modest, CA. The whole Say Something Assembly team flew out for four jam packed days of assemblies. I lost count but I think we did somewhere between 15 and 20 from just Monday through Thursday! Brandon was able to run sound and video for each one, probably [...]

Prevention: all the things you can do!!

"How do I make an unhealthy relationship spiritual again?" "You don't." I said it before thinking. Probably should have thought about it. But she received it well. "That's what I thought you would say, I just don't like that answer." Welcome to the woes of living in sin. I didn't say that. Thank goodness I [...]
