THE STORY:

New Era Trainings has partnered with the Polaris Project to raise awareness for the fight to end human trafficking. 

San Francisco happens to be a central hub for human trafficking. The average victim is 12-14 years old and usually a young girl. There are millions out there who are enslaved. We can help stop this. 

Polaris has been awarded the highest rating for fiscal responsibility 3 years in a row by Charity Navigator. The money is used well. 

Polaris provides: 

  • A 24/7 national hotline for anyone to call about suspicious activity or for victims who need help 
  • Food and shelter for victims and their children 
  • Reform at a state level to push anti-trafficking laws and more justice for victims
  • Training for law enforcement and community organizers on how to recognize the signs of trafficking and how to respond

What is the impact of your donation?
Any donation amount helps and is immensely appreciated. 

$25 supports the operation of the national hotline for an hour during an emergency shift. 
$50 provides food for a survivor and her children for a week. 
$100 helps provide rent for survivors while they recover. 
$360 can help the hotline facilitate an immediate crisis response to a child who calls in trying to escape another night with a violent pimp.
$500 supports on-the-ground advocacy efforts to improve legislation in 1 state for 5 months. 
$600 provides 1 month of of transitional housing for 1 survivor. 

=======================================

EVENTS: 
We will be hosting an awareness night on April 21st from 6-10pm at Raven Bar (SF).  

When and where? 
Sunday, April 21st 6-10pm
Raven Bar @ 1151 Folsom Street, San Francisco 

=======================================

What is the Polaris Project?
Polaris Project is one of the leading organizations in the global fight against human trafficking and modern-day slavery. Named after the North Star "Polaris" that guided slaves to freedom along the Underground Railroad, Polaris Project is transforming the way that individuals and communities respond to human trafficking, in the U.S. and globally.

By successfully pushing for stronger federal and state laws, operating the National Human Trafficking Resource Center hotline (1-888-373-7888), conducting trainings, and providing vital services to victims of trafficking, Polaris Project creates long-term solutions that move our society closer to a world without slavery.
