THE STORY:

Frankly there couldn't be enough reasons to support an organisation like Sanctuary. Personally, I'm on the Pro Bono Board because I continue to be horrified the Battered Women Syndrome still isn't recognized by most courts in a plea of self-defense. Maybe you'd like to help us out because you think it's crazy how few domestic violence incidents go to trial even though  1 in 4 women suffer from DV during their lives. Perhaps you think that the fact that sex-trafficking is a $150 billion industry (meaning that sex slavery is a bigger industry than the NFL), wiith 4,000 underage kids forced into sexual slavery each night* in New York alone, is kind of the most awful thing imaginable. Possibly you're just generally of the opinion that abuse is bad.Whatever the reason, we could use your help.

 

Thank you.

 

I actually typed out 4,000 kids/year and was staggered. But nope, no, it's 4,000 a night. Really. Come on.
