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