COVID -19 Emergency Response
The current pandemic has created huge challenges for us all, but particularly unique obstacles for victims and survivors of human trafficking. Our dedicated service providers need our support as they to continue to provide their clients with safety, security, immediate needs, essentials and therapeutic activities to deal with stress and self-quarantine. California Against Slavery is assisting service providers with grocery and fast food gift cards, Amazon and Target wish lists. 100% of these donations will go directly to service providers.
Thank you for supporting survivors!
From our founding in 2010, CAS has promoted and provided a platform for survivor voice. We know we learn best how to prevent and how to support those exiting human trafficking from those who have experienced it. And there are so many out there that have not yet let their story be told. In 2020 we will endeavor to produce 10 additional survivor stories and videos to our library. This requires not only the identification, preliminary interview, and story coaching for survivors, but the professional services of a videographer and editor. We are committed to compensating each survivor who is interviewed.
Estimated cost: $20,000 for video production and survivor honorariums.
