HER Campaign’s mission is to help HER heal, grow, and find purpose. We do this through bringing awareness, building community, and providing opportunity for restoration. Together, we are creating a World where FREEDOM gets the final say.
Human trafficking is an epidemic in our world today, one that has greatly affected our country and the state of Montana. It is also an issue that typically starts in the home. The average age of a victim of sex trafficking is between 13-15 years old. The largest percentage of victims are those who have come from broken homes or parents that struggle with addictions, have been in or are currently in the foster care system, minorities, and/or victims of child sexual abuse.
We believe in equipping a network of local organizations, businesses, ministries, and individuals to take a stand against this illicit industry through prevention for the vulnerable and trauma-informed care for victims of sexual exploitation through our organization and safe house programs.
“In a dark and hurting world, we have the opportunity as women to be carriers of light and support for our sisters. By walking the path of healing for ourselves, recognizing our worth and true identity, we get to live in a place of overflow where there is an expression of love unconditional, joy abounding and peace that passes all understanding. That is the heart behind the HER Campaign.”
— Britney Higgs, President & Founder
There is always hope
The HER Campaign logo represents the leaf of a sycamore tree found in the ancient Middle East. The sycamore tree was considered sacred and was used for many things including a place of refuge. The highways were lined with these huge trees, providing a shelter and shade for weary travelers. In times of emergency, people would take refuge in the trunks of the mighty sycamore trees. They were a symbol of refuge and protection in ancient Israel and were admired with great care.
There are seven lines in the leaf that represent the number of completion. The HER Campaign serves to break the bonds of slavery and provide healing and restoration for women that have suffered trauma. We base our healing around the belief that God is our ultimate refuge and strength, a helper who is always found in times of trouble.
The small section on the left (filled in with gold) represents the percentage of survivors that have recovered after a life of sexual exploitation and trafficking. The rest of the leaf is transparent to remind us to keep fighting for the vast majority that is still enslaved in our world today.
