Day three of Thirty Days of Giving! You know the drill by now.
Today’s organization is…
Who they are - A non-profit organization dedicated to stopping human trafficking/slavery. They have offices in DC, New Jersey and Japan.
What they do - From the website:
Polaris Project is a leading organization in the United States combating all forms of human trafficking and serving both U.S. citizens and foreign national victims, including men, women, and children. We use a holistic strategy, taking what we learn from our work with survivors and using it to guide the creation of long-term solutions. We strive for systemic change by advocating for stronger federal and state laws, operating the National Human Trafficking Resource Center hotline 1.888.3737.888, and providing services to help our clients and all victims of human trafficking.
Why it’s important - I hope I do not have to explain to you why it’s imperative to end human trafficking and slavery. If you’re not sure, perhaps perusing Polaris Project’s FAQs will help.
What you can do - If you’re interested in simply donating money, please try to do it before the end of December, as the organization will receive a matching fund from a foundation.
If you’d like to do something other than donate, visit the Take Action section of the Polaris Project website. You’ll find tools to learn more about the issue, advocate for the cause, join the grassroots network, volunteer, attend events and more.
