We are an un-affiliated but well-connected group of people who care about ending modern slavery.
To eradicate modern day slavery in Los Angeles and assist in the global effort
Action: Mobilize a group of volunteers to assist with non-profits and their initiatives.
Awareness: To provide resources to people who are unaware of the issue in a variety of communities.
- A survivor of human trafficking shared her personal story
- Several experts in the field discussed how volunteers can most effectively fight modern day slavery
- Raised over $1000 for Polaris at our garage sale and spoke to 100 people about the issue
- Reached out to 200-300 people at Cal State Long Beach at the Human Trafficking Awareness Fair on November 17
- Spoke to 700 students at David Starr Jordan High School in January
- Created over 25 Freedom Bags for LA-based CAST which provide basic supplies for recently rescued victims
