Our helping hands
This week we thought it would be good to inform you of a couple of organizations in Seattle who are working to stop sex trafficking in our city. Next week is our last class of the official quarter when we will tally up the donations since January and choose an organization to donate to.
The Bridge Program: This organization helps youth who are victims of sex trafficking get off the streets and helps rehabilitate them. They provide shelter, counseling services and helps them get their high school diploma or GED and job training.
Seattle Against Slavery: “Seattle Against Slavery (SAS) is a grassroots coalition working to make a slave-free world, one city at a time. Uniting community-based abolition activists, local and national non-government organizations, government agencies, and other coalitions, SAS seeks to raise human trafficking awareness and mobilize the public to better advocate for victims, enhance survivor care, promote legislation to combat human trafficking, and help service providers build capacity.”
Please take a moment to read more about these organizations. We would love to hear your vote on which organization you would like our donation to go toward. It is devastating to read about some of the things these girls and women have gone through. Our hope is that even as we gather to dance once a week we can provide one girl with a chance to break free from slavery.
