Nita Belles

In 2006, Nita Belles, In Our Backyard (IOB) Founder and Executive Director, was exposed to the realities of human trafficking in America in 2006 and realized that there was no option to “stand on the sidelines” of this atrocity. As a recognized national leader and expert in the anti-trafficking movement, Belles works tirelessly to link arms across America in the fight against human trafficking. After self-publishing her first book in 2011, Belles authored what has been acclaimed as the primer on human trafficking in 2015: In Our Backyard: Human Trafficking in America and What We Can Do to Stop It.
