Tim Ballard serves as the co-chair of the White House Public-Private Advisory Council to End Human Trafficking. Tim’s mission in life is to end human trafficking and allow victims to receive the treatment necessary for healing. Human trafficking or modern day slavery, is the fastest growing criminal enterprise in the world, it’s a 153-Billion-dollar industry. Tim’s shared that “It’s now rivaling the drug trade because you can sell a pound of cocaine one time. You can sell a child 10 … 20 … 30 times within a 24-hour cycle and that’s not an exaggeration.”
As a young kid, Tim would dress up for Halloween with his FBI jacket. His dad said with Tim in the house it was like they had their own personal security guard that would check the windows and doors at night. This constant caring nature led him to serve a two-year service mission for his church in Chile, South America. Learning Spanish aided him in his Bachelors degree in Spanish and Political Science from Brigham Young University.
