Operation Underground Railroad (O.U.R.) was founded in 2013 by Tim Ballard. They have gathered the world's experts in extraction operations and in anti-child trafficking efforts to bring an end to child slavery. O.U.R.'s Underground Jump Team consists of former CIA, Navy SEALs, and Special Ops operatives that lead coordinated identification and extraction efforts. These operations are always in conjunction with law enforcement throughout the world.
Once victims are rescued, a comprehensive process involving justice for the perpetrators and recovery and rehabilitation for the survivors begins.
This is a story about the lost children and the recue team’s exploits as they investigate and liberate enslaved children from around the world.
The Abolitionsts is a documentary film taking you inside the world of O.U.R. On December 10th, 2013 Special Agent Tim Ballard turned in his Homeland Security badge and resigned from his employment with the United States government. He had spent over a decade rescuing children from child sex tourism both domestically and overseas. Though his job was difficult, he was proud that his country was one of very few in the world who was actually doing anything about this problem. However, mired in red tape and bureaucracy, Tim left to begin saving the children that he saw falling out of the purview of the US government. These children constitute over 90% of the children lost to child sex slavery and he could do nothing to help them while in the employment of the US government.
We are humbled to have an opportunity to bring light to this incredible need and hopefully educate others like you who are willing to join us and take action. After the film there will be a short presentation with information on how to support O.U.R. and donate as well as how this global problem is effecting our local community.
