Our Mission

Break The Cycle 200 (BTC200) orchestrates 200-mile bike rides and other endurance events in multiple cities across the United States to raise awareness and funds for the fight against human trafficking, right here in the US and around the world. We see the brutal realities of trafficking and acknowledge that it truly is a form of modern-day slavery. Evidence shows that human trafficking has many contributing causes – but the cycle can be broken. We ride so they can be free.

Today, BTC 200 is part of the Hope for Justice family. Now we can more effectively rescue victims, provide aftercare to help survivors start their healing journey and partner with law enforcement and prosecutors to ensure perpetrators face justice.

Hope for Justice is an international non-profit organization working to bring an end to modern slavery and human trafficking. It has an effective and proven model that is replicable, scalable, and widely admired.

Our vision is to live in a world free from slavery. Hope for Justice’s global work, across five continents, is split into four strands:

PREVENT EXPLOITATION

Our outreach teams, self-help groups and community education initiatives empower people to protect themselves and their families from predatory traffickers and their recruiters.

RESTORE LIVES

We work with victims to overcome trauma and rebuild their lives. We offer tailored restorative care initiatives and offer support to meet vital needs, including survivor-centered aftercare in some of the countries where we work.

RESCUE VICTIMS

Our specialist teams work closely with law enforcement
to identify victims of trafficking and modern slavery, build bridges of trust with them and remove them from exploitation and into safety. They build cases to ensure perpetrators are brought to justice.

REFORM SOCIETY

We train professionals to spot the signs of trafficking and
to respond, and campaign for policy change. We help businesses protect their operations and supply chains from modern slavery. We work closely with federal and state legislators to improve the response to trafficking.

Our Objectives

    1. Use 200 mile extreme bike rides and other events as a tool to raise funds and awareness to help fight human trafficking.
    1. Raise money to support the efforts of Hope for Justice, and put a stop to modern slavery.
    1. Increase awareness of the problem of human trafficking both internationally and locally.
