CFC-supported organizations are working to end human trafficking, which affects more than 20 million victims in the United States and around the world. This modern slavery may involve sexual exploitation, forced labor, or domestic servitude. Charities provide resources to help victims speak out, face their traffickers in court, rebuild their lives, as well tools to help recognize the signs of human trafficking and prevent it within communities.
Here's how you can make an impact:
- $53 provides a safe and secure place to stay overnight for women leaving domestic violence.
- $85 supports a four-day summer camp for an at-risk young woman, helping her to gain self-confidence, acquire life skills, and learn to protect herself.
- $100 provides one in-person mentoring session or technical assistance call for a new pro bono attorney handling a human trafficking case.
