David Zach is an advocate in the fight against human trafficking. He spends time overseas as a volunteer undercover operative with the abolitionist group The Exodus Road. While overseas, Zach spends time in brothels and clubs in the red-light districts where underage girls and boys are sold by the hour. His role while undercover is to identify instances of minors being sold and to capture actionable evidence of their trafficking using covert gear. That evidence is used to make rescues and arrests in partnership with local authorities. The idea that ordinary human beings can impact change for freedom and justice is central to Zach’s message.
