Overall Excellence Chapter Award




*Human trafficking is a multibillion-dollar criminal industry that denies freedom to 24.9 million people.

This is happening in our community - Kansas City is one of the top sex trafficking cities in the country because I-35 and I-70 provide easy access to move victims.

MPI Kansas City, along with MPI Global and the MPI Anti-Human Trafficking Committee, is committed to raising awareness and joining the fight to end all forms of human trafficking. As Meeting Professionals, we have the responsibility to be vigilant in ensuring that our events are safe for all attendees, guests and bystanders. For more information and resources from MPI Global please visit MPI's Global AHT Page and check out MPI's Anti-Human Trafficking Policy.

In conjunction with offering our own AHT education and community resources, MPIKC is proud to partner with REHOPE, a local organization that provides housing, treatment, and lifelong sustainment services for women and children victims of human trafficking. They provide survivors with individual attention and focused programming that promotes sustainable healing and ongoing support. REHOPE runs three programs to carry out its mission.

  • REHOPE Farms

17-acre farm and campus for women survivors with long-term housing, trauma therapy, healing programs, education services, job preparation, reintegration services, and ongoing support. As the largest residential program in the Midwest, REHOPE Farms also partners with providers for medical and psychological needs to the survivors, free of charge.

  • REHOPE Youth

50% of those sex trafficked in the US are minors. REHOPE opened a campus for the restoration of trafficked children, and is the only organization that accepts boys in the Midwest. This campus provides trauma treatment, education, family reintegration, and advanced, trauma-informed foster/adoptive services. RH Youth serves up to 7 girls and 7 boys (11-17 years of age) at a time.

  • REHOPE Market

REHOPE Market is a social enterprise benefiting women and children survivors of human trafficking. They provide jobs, professional skills training, therapeutic and creative outlets, a reintegrated platform into the community, and a place to sell survivor-made products.
