BCAHT uses the Break the Chain Community Action Model, taking after Bob Morrison’s Break the Chain model. BCAHT believes that human trafficking is a chain of slavery with four links: traffickers, vulnerable people, buyers, and society. As professionals and everyday people, BCAHT works together and weakens links, believing that weakening the links in the chain will ultimately break the chain. BCAHT meets monthly, breaking into four groups associated with the links.
