Stop Trafficking Project
Stop Trafficking Project

Russ Tuttle - President and Founder

Russ’ primary strengths are communication, leadership, team development, and compassion.

Russ is currently using his strengths to bring awareness to the crisis of human trafficking through The Stop Trafficking Project, which includes serving as the director for BeAlert and as a founding board member for Kansas City Street Hope.
 
BeAlert is the awareness and prevention strategy of The Stop Trafficking Project. The primary method of implementation is through presentations designed to 1) educate and empower students and 2) guide adults from awareness to action. A commitment to collaborate allows for presentations that provide insight into ‘the problem’ of domestic minor sex trafficking (DMST) and at the same time offer effective ‘solutions’. These presentations have impact in a variety of settings.

Russ grew up for much of his childhood and teenage years in India. This created within him the drive to serve those who are unable to help themselves.

Russ brings 29 years of passion and experience in the not-for-profit world to The Stop Trafficking Project team and is the primary communicator of the vision and mission.
