InfraGard National Members Alliance and NEC Corporation of America Join Forces in the Fight Against Human Trafficking

InfraGard National Members Alliance, an FBI-affiliated nonprofit organization dedicated to protecting U.S. critical infrastructure and the American people, and NEC Corporation of America have joined forces in the fight against human trafficking. In honor of National Human Trafficking Prevention Month in January, NEC has formalized its commitment as a diamond sponsor of InfraGard National Members Alliance and will support educational programs that promote awareness and prevention of this heinous crime.

“On behalf of NEC Corporation of America, I extend sincere gratitude to InfraGard National Members Alliance for its service to our country. Our investment will support key programs that eradicate human trafficking, foster information-sharing between the public and private sectors, and strengthen community resilience. Through this partnership we will utilize our technology and assets to advance the shared goal of ensuring the safety and security of all Americans,” said Mark Ikeno, CEO and President, NEC Corporation of America.

Human trafficking involves the use of force, fraud, or coercion to obtain some type of labor or commercial sex act. Every year, many adults and children are trafficked worldwide, with more than 1,700 pending FBI cases as of January 5, 2022. Approximately 95 percent of the FBI’s human trafficking cases involve sex trafficking, and the remainder involve labor trafficking.

“Human trafficking is a threat to not only public safety and national security, but to the dignity and worth of all human life,” said Maureen O’Connell, President, InfraGard National Members Alliance. “Law enforcement and the private sector must work together to raise awareness about the atrocities being committed in cities and neighborhoods across America. We are incredibly grateful to NEC Corporation of America for demonstrating such leadership, commitment and generosity in supporting InfraGard National Members Alliance. By shining a light on human trafficking, we can take this crime out of the shadows and protect the most vulnerable.”
