Last fall, we began a community
conversation about human trafficking
and the role that communities need
to play in addressing it. The Human
Trafficking Prevention Project, an
initiative supported by the Rotary Club
of Warrenton, the Fauquier County
Sheriff's Office, and other community
organizations launched the conversation,
and since then, exciting, tangible steps
forward have been taken.
One of the speakers at the initial event
was Bill Woolf, executive director of the
Just Ask Prevention Project, a nonprofit
organization that views human trafficking
as a public health issue against which
communities need to be inoculated. The
best way to do so is through prevention,
which is their primary focus.
Bill explains that the organization began
as part of the Northern Virginia Human
Trafficking Task Force, which was
established in 2013. They received a
federal grant, which included an outreach
campaign requirement. "Just Ask" was
that campaign's slogan, and it quickly
became its own entity. Over the past six
years, the Just Ask Prevention Project
has educated over 900 professional and
community-based organizations in the
identification, prevention, and response
to human trafficking and other forms of
exploitation.
The organization has since partnered
with the Fauquier County-based
organizations noted above as well as
BWell Today for Tomorrow, the Warrenton
Aquatic and Recreation Facility, and
various businesses and places of
worship. Bill explains that as the Just
Ask Prevention Project has expanded
its presence in Northern Virginia, it made
sense to consider a more convenient and
accessible location for its headquarters,
and several elements pointed to Fauquier
County. As of late May, they downsized
their McLean office and relocated here so
they can more easily facilitate programs
with the Fauquier County Sheriff's office
and other agencies that have agreed to
pilot them.
In addition, on May 2, a National Day
of Prayer, a breakfast was held at Airlie
Conference Center, where about 100
people, including more than a half-dozen
representatives from Fauquier churches,
gathered to offer a Christian response
to human trafficking, offering prayers for

the victims
as well as

and buyers,

enforcement,
outreach workers, and more. Bill spoke
at the event along with several others,
including The Honorable G. Zachary
Terwilliger, 62nd United States Attorney
for the Eastern District of Virginia, who
offered the keynote address.
Bill notes that this event was a crucial
step. "Awareness is important, but
when you have an event like this
within a community, you take that next
step--engagement," he says. "When
people see representatives from non-
governmental organizations, the sheriff's
office, elected officials, school officials,
and members of the faith community all
united on one issue, it makes them want
to get involved and empowers them to
take that message forward."
In addition, Bill says that while the Just
Ask Prevention Project isn't a faith-based
organization, he personally feels that
prayer and unity make a huge difference
in the fight against human trafficking.
"This is a challenging field," he says.
"There are days when you feel deflated,
but events like this serve to motivate and
re-energize. I left feeling uplifted and
encouraged."
The event was especially poignant
for Bill for a couple of reasons. It was
here that an attendee approached him
to offer space--without knowing that
the organization was seeking to move
to Fauquier County--for what recently
became their new location. And at the
end of the breakfast, Amelia Stansell,
co-chair of the Fauquier County Human
Trafficking Prevention Project, presented
the Just Ask Prevention Project with a
$2,500 donation from the community.
The organization continues to seek
partners to host awareness events
and individuals to support their work
financially or through volunteer efforts.
