We Went Hunting For Human Traffickers. This Is What We Found.
Many of you know me for the work I do with Law Enforcement Today as their national spokesperson. What you may not know about me is that by day, I run a marketing agency called The Silent Partner and a patriotic startup about to launch called The Whiskey Patriots.
These three roles mean that I’m blessed to meet and engage with some of the greatest patriots in America and run the marketing for some of the most patriotic companies in America as well.
So when a former CIA operative reached out to me and asked me if I wanted to help hunt human traffickers… I was totally on board.
But there was a catch.
“So….”, said Nic McKinley, the executive director of DeliverFund, “we sort of take every penny we make and use it to save the victims of sex trafficking and crush evil.”
Ah. The money problem. Not uncommon in the world where non-profits are ACTUALLY working to make a difference in the world.
“Let me make a phone call,” I told him.
I called Matthew Wolfe, the vice president at Inforce.
If you’ve never heard of Inforce, they make some seriously bad-ass rifle, pistol and tactical handheld lights. Next time you see a gun up close and personal (hopefully not anytime soon) from the FBI, NYPD, LAPD or our military, you might notice Inforce lights on them.
Of course you didn’t hear that from me.
“Hey brother… I sort of need you to fly my crew and I across the country,” I told him.
“Ok – whatcha got?”
“How about a non-profit organization called DeliverFund started by retired SEALS, CIA guys, NSA analysts and special operations veterans that is decimating human trafficking networks?”
“Tell me more.”
“They train and equip police officers across the country and give them special access to proprietary software that’s lead to a 100% conviction rate in these human trafficking cases. They also run Inforce lights on all of their training weapons.”
“Go. Go now. Bring as many cinematographers as you need to. Capture their story. Bring them a ton of lights. Let’s help these guys save some lives.”
And that, brothers and sisters, is how some of the greatest patriots and patriotic companies come together to bring light into the darkest corners of the world.
Here’s a taste of what we filmed.
There’s MUCH more to come.
