Other Ways to Get Involved

You're wearing the blue bead bracelet, now what?  There are hundreds of organizations that work to end slavery and human trafficking. There are people right there, on the front lines, putting their lives at risk to help others. We've put together a list of a few that could use your donations of time and money.

Slavery No More At Slavery No More, one of our goals is to build strategic relationships with key organizations that have proven successful in combating human trafficking and modern day slavery through prevention, rescue, restoration, and structural transformation.  We in turn would like to share them with those who are interested in supporting the work of abolishing slavery.  We invite you to learn about these organizations and support them by offering them your time, skills, and finances.

 

Free The Slaves  At the core of our approach is a simple, elegant idea—slavery is defeated when at-risk communities acquire the knowledge, tools, and resources they need to overcome vulnerability and secure freedom.

 

End Slavery Now   End Slavery Now launched in 2009 in Washington, DC with four features: an action database, an organization directory, learning resources and store. By 2013, the organization outgrew its Washington, DC office, and its leaders knew it was time to find a larger home. That fall, the organization moved to Cincinnati, Ohio - the former gatekeeper to the Underground Railroad - and joined the National Underground Railroad Freedom Center. Today, End Slavery Now is owned and operated by the Freedom Center as a part of its contemporary antislavery program.

 

Coalition to Abolish Slavery and Trafficking  The Coalition to Abolish Slavery and Trafficking was one of the first organizations in the United States to provide services to victims of trafficking, as such.

CAST's activities are interconnected by a client-centered approach that seeks to empower trafficked persons to fully realize their individual potential while advancing the human rights of all trafficked persons.

 

Rapha House  Rapha House programs exist to extend unconditional love to girls who have been rescued out of slavery and sexual exploitation.  Every member of the Rapha House staff has dedicated his or herself to seeing each child at Rapha House restored to sustainable freedom.

 

GEMS  GEMS provides a spectrum of continuous and comprehensive services to address the needs of commercially and sexually exploited girls and young women. Commercial sexual exploitation is intrinsically linked to racism, poverty, gender-based violence, and the criminalization of youth. All these factors are an integral part of any discussion, advocacy work or direct service programming that involves sexual exploitation. All of GEMS programs are based on our philosophy and values that each girl and young woman is deserving, and needs support and services to treat the trauma and violence she has experienced.
