"Making socially conscious movies highlighting the injustice of Human Trafficking, child marriage, child labor and spiritual abuse, then directly aiding the survivors upon whom the films shed light"

Support us by MakingADifference in the lives of over 200 survivors of Human Trafficking who we’ve aided because of supporters like you!

The Basics

MoviesMakingADifference (MMAD) is a 501c3 nonprofit dedicated to reducing human trafficking in the U.S. Founded in 2014, we produce feature films based on true events to raise awareness of the issues happening right in our own backyard. We believe that by increasing awareness, we are “MakingADifference” and saving young men and women from the horrors of human trafficking. As of 2023, we have rescued over 200 survivors, giving them access to our support programs and welcoming them into our MMAD Family. Two of our survivors have become board members. All proceeds from our films go directly to aid survivors.


Just $23/month in ’23 will earn you a spot on our Walk of Fame! 

Moving our survivors from life’s darkest places to being self-reliant and confident members of society requires consistency. Help us supply them with the tools and resources they need.  


A one-time donation of as little as $275 will earn you a spot on our Walk of Fame! Have more? Give more. 

Individual donations are vitally important in our fight to maintain support for our brave survivors.  We are so grateful for your help, and we welcome you to our family!


If you or someone you know wants to get involved on a business or corporate level, we have several options available including local and national sponsorships, corporate underwriting, and Hollywood producer opportunities!

Please get in touch if you’re interested in supporting MMAD!

Beyond The Movies

MOST IMPORTANTLY:  Beyond raising awareness with our award-winning movies, we also do the difficult, hands-on work of extracting victims from these horrendous circumstances and supporting them throughout their journeys to becoming healthy, independent and strong.

Words From Our Survivors

A Word From Our Founder

“I’ve seen first-hand the suffering and oppression involved in human trafficking and sex slavery. Although the subject matter is disturbing and unthinkable, I do believe we can make a difference, one person at a time. I’ve dedicated my life to helping those who don’t have a voice, and I’m asking you to join us in this fight.” 

– Diana Davis
