Destiny Rescue launches second Red Shoe campaign -

FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WPTA21) — An international nonprofit is observing Human Trafficking Awareness month by launching a campaign to raise awareness.

Destiny Rescue said the Red Shoe campaign encourages people to be a voice for those trapped by wearing red shoes to raise awareness of the issue of child sex trafficking.

The idea for the campaign comes from the founder’s time undercover in a brothel. He saw a pair of small red shoes by the door of a room and could hear what was happening to the young girl behind the door.

“The image of those red shoes is a constant reminder that there are more children who are trapped and being sold. It drives us to keep going and to keep fighting until they are all free,” Aaron Brown, National Director of Operations for Destiny Rescue said.

The organization hopes that wearing red shoes could spark a conversation with someone who had no idea this was happening to children.

Additionally, Destiny Rescue has a goal of gathering 100 new Rescue Partners during the campaign timeframe. These are people who help rescue and restore children through financial support. You can learn about becoming a Rescue Partner at or by visiting Destiny Rescue’s website.
