Michigan Rescue and Restore Coalition - Building Bridges


This Coalition is dedicated to raising awareness about human trafficking in the metro Detroit area and Michigan. We will educate and train the community.

The eyes of our understanding has to be opened! We all must learn to recognize the crime of human trafficking. We all must become advocates and abolitionist against this criminal activity.

Join us and help impact change for generations to come.
We cannot put our heads in the sand.
No one is free until all are free!

I'm taking a stand to end slavery: modern-day labor, sex trafficking and child abuse...

Stephanie Brown, Richard's 17-year old granddaughter, died of a fatal drug-overdose on March 16, 2007, after being hired at a local downriver strip-club in Lincoln Park, Michigan, where two patrons (a volunteer basketball coach and an ordained minister) including a dancer at the club, sex-trafficked Stephanie to a local motel down the street and where she died that morning.

Together the State of Michigan and Stephanie's family successfully prosecuted a drug-dealing, junior high school volunteer coach and later settled out-of-court with the strip-club for employing an underage person for sex-work. However, Richard continues to pursue other legal rights, causes and criminal investigations in human and labor trafficking cases regarding Stephanie's death at the local, state and federal levels including international awareness and education.
