MISSION

The Rebecca Bender Initiative is committed to changing the mindset of our culture by equipping front line advocates and communities on issues that affect today’s culture, and assisting victims of sex trafficking in finding true freedom through individual restoration and empowerment.

VISION

RBI'S vision is to see a world free of oppression and exploitation, where all people can go after their dreams with zealous abandon. We desire to help people reach their dreams, knowing that their past does not have to define nor determine their destiny. By creating innovative and culturally competent programs, we are able to provide direct services to victims of sexual exploitation and assist those who are working the front lines. By participating in a multi-media approach, we can radically shift the way culture sees the issue of commercial sexual exploitation in America.
