A few years ago, when I was living in Milwaukee, I first heard about how common it was in my own community for people to be forced to work against their will, being exploited in a multitude of ways by human traffickers. Unfortunately, this is a reality in cities across the country.
I believe we’re called to stand up on behalf of the oppressed and fight against injustice, so I’ve looked for organizations I can support that are on the front lines of this battle.
Here in the San Francisco area, Justice At Last is one of these organizations. Justice At Last helps bring an end to cycles of injustice and exploitation by serving survivors of trafficking who require legal help, like record clearance, immigration relief, and crime victim’s representation.
While there is a serious shortage of trauma-informed legal counsel available to trafficking survivors in the Bay Area, the good news is that Justice At Last exists to help these survivors seek justice on their own terms.
I now serve as chair of the board of Justice At Last and I’m thrilled to support our growing staff who works tirelessly to serve trafficking survivors. Would you join me in investing in Justice At Last? This campaign is really important to helping us reach our annual fundraising goals, so I’d like to raise $800 from my own network. If we meet our goals as an organization, a generous group of donors has committed to doubling the amount given (our total goal is $20,000). So please contribute to this campaign to make your donation stretch even further!
