BAAHT has be a forerunners for California in collaborative, multi-agency response to human trafficking and the Freedom Summit has provided a wealth of information, based on experience on addressing human trafficking. The Freedom Summit is a biennial conference that serves as a catalytic event to bring San Francisco Bay Area abolitionists, communities and organizations together around the issue of Human Trafficking.
