Well known as an outspoken Provocateur, Bechard is credited with writing multiple pieces of successful legislation focusing on human trafficking, forcing Facebook to enact stronger child-safety measures and removing thousands of illicit pages of content from their website, "killing" a Tribune Media publication after it continued to run ads selling illegal "escort" services, and generally making people in power uncomfortable whenever he focuses his resources, writing and public speaking on them.

Among hundreds of other writings he is the author of the recently published books, The Berlin Turnpike: A True Story of Human Trafficking in America, a close, historical examination of Commercial Sexual Exploitation and its place within all American communities, and Unspeakable: The Truth Behind the World’s Fastest Growing Crime, an expose of Child Trafficking in all its forms around the globe.

Now, he is producing Honor Bound, a television documentary series telling the previously unknown stories of the US military’s humanitarian work throughout the world.

To multiply his impact, he has trained thousands of people, equipping individuals with the no-nonsense information and resources needed to bring lasting change.

With over 1.5 million followers joining his Heroes Rising campaign, Raymond continues speaking truth to power, exposing corruption and giving a voice to those who have none. Read Less ^
