5/15/2016 - OKC, OK -- A local non-profit dedicated to positively impacting those involved in prostitution and human sex trafficking has once again invited JohnTV's own Video Vigilante Brian Bates to guest speak during part of their two-day 'Intervention Strategies' training.

No Boundaries International (NBI) is a local faith based nonprofit with service facilities in South Oklahoma City, NW Oklahoma City and central Edmond.

According to their website, "Here in the Oklahoma area, NBI is driven to stop modern day slavery known as “human trafficking” that is occurring on the streets of Oklahoma City. Whether it is the prostituted woman, the at-risk child, the homeless individual or those struggling with addiction and brokenness, No Boundaries seeks to reach out on a street level and provide realistic solutions to those in need."

NBI first reached out to Bates in 2011 when their organization's administrators sought to see the negative impact of prostitution and human trafficking on our streets first-hand. NBI has dedicated much of their limited resources to making a difference in the individuals and communities most effected ever since.

This Friday and Saturday, May 20/21, NBI will be hosting a Intervention Strategies for Human Trafficking training - "This all day training is to equip those who are interested in working with NBI in our stateside human trafficking efforts on a consistent long-term basis using a faith based approach."

Bates will be presenting his perspective on the problem locally, which will include; and overview of local prostitution and sex trafficking, how Bates personally seeks to positively impact the issue, the players, the reality of the justice system and the current state of the problem locally.

The cost for attending the two training workshop is $50 - which includes both days, all materials, lunch and a mandatory volunteer background check fee.

The training will be held at NBI's Base 907 - located at 907 W. Britton Rd. in OKC (just west of Broadway Ext. on Britton).

You can find out more information about the training class on NBI's website.


Bates is regularly invited to address groups throughout Oklahoma at colleges, universities, civic groups, and more. For more information about having Bates present to your audience, please contact JohnTV via email or phone (see bottom of this page).
