Abolitionista! comics are the passion of writer and comic book creator Thomas Estler, who is Saving Jane's Director of Storytelling and Prevention Programs. He believes that young people are the most powerful untapped force on the planet in the global fight against human trafficking. We want to inspire and empower a generation of young people with our comic books to have a powerful impact on liberating enslaved peoples in their own neighborhoods and in communities around the world.
Saving Jane is committed to ending all forms of human trafficking and slavery. We do this through raising public awareness, education, the transformation of lives of impacted individuals, and the creation of systems, technology and policies to protect and support impacted individuals or prevent the formation of social conditions conducive to trafficking.
Saving Jane prints comic books about human trafficking that educate young people about how trafficking occurs, what the red flags of manipulation or "grooming" look like, and what to do if they see the signs or are in a vulnerable situation. Saving Jane distributes these books through schools and youth programs across the U.S.
