Empowering Against Exploitation

Close-up of People Bumping Fists



Transformation Freedom Initiative (TFI) Empowers Against Exploitation by raising awareness and prevention of human trafficking in Central Virginia and parts of the Shenandoah Valley. This is done through offering audience specific presentations, occupation specific training, youth programs on safety and human trafficking prevention, and youth worker training opportunities. TFI connects these resources with local organizations or community members, covers all costs associated, and implements resources as needed.


Click here to reflect and give thanks with us for the opportunities to Empower Against Exploitation in 2023. All of this work was made possible by the God given love, prayers, and support of those following along in this journey of justice.

Thank you for walking with, praying for, and giving towards this work!

Anna Nalle, Director

Anna was born on the mission field in Thailand and grew up in Charlottesville, VA. She received her bachelor’s degree in Interdisciplinary Studies with cognates in Christian Counseling and Psychology from Liberty University Online in 2017.

After college, Anna interned with International Justice Mission and Freedom 4/24. Through these internships, Anna felt led to pursue the work of TFI. It is an honor for her to implement crucial anti-trafficking resources in the local community. She and her husband make their home in Central VA.



Audience Specific Presentations

Are you a parent, Kiwanis or Rotary club member, church leader, or just interested in learning more about human trafficking? TFI will meet you where you are with context specific information on human trafficking, its relevance, and practical steps you can take to prevent it.

Occupation Specific Training

TFI will work with any industry or sector to provide training on human trafficking prevention, identification, and intervention.

Currently, we offer a 90 minute training on health and human trafficking as 87.8% of victims encounter a health care provider while being trafficked*. Interested in occupation specific training for your job? We would love to collaborate.
