ABOUT TIM BALLARD

Tim Ballard spent over a decade working as a Special Agent for the Department of Homeland Security, where he was assigned to the Internet Crimes Against Children (ICAC) Task Force as an undercover operative–helping dismantle child trafficking rings in the US and multiple foreign countries.

In 2013, Tim and a team of special operatives left their careers and founded Operation Underground Railroad, the premier private organization in the world to take on child trafficking cartels; resulting in the rescue and rehabilitation of over 7,000 children and women. Their early efforts are seen in the movie SOUND OF FREEDOM.

Tim is now Senior Advisor to The SPEAR Fund, a totally new approach that
invites all anti-trafficking organizations and concerned people of the world to come together in unity to end human trafficking once and for all.
