EVENT DATE: Sep 20, 2014
Amirah is a non-profit organization that fights human trafficking and serves survivors of human trafficking. Based out of the North Shore of Boston, and serving New England, Amirah's mission is to provide a refuge for those seeking to break free from exploitation and heal in community on their journey toward lasting hope.
"Ride for Amirah" is a community ride of either 25 or 62 miles for riders and ride sponsors to use their love of cycling, and cyclists, to support Amirah and survivors of human trafficking.
Amirah serves women 18 years and older who have been sex trafficked, labor trafficked, or are highly at risk for being trafficked. They have 10 of only 13 beds in New England in human trafficking safe homes. They have the only beds within a whole-person care program that's trauma-informed, survivor lead, and has in-house case management and 24/7 coverage. Amirah currently turns down several requests for beds each week.
After 9 months of residential operations at half-capacity, Amirah is inviting the New England community to help them open their safe house and non-residential programs to full capacity so more survivors can be served and more trafficking can be prevented.
Beverly Cycles and Knudsen, Burbridge, and Manchur, P.C., in coordination with Gordon College, are pleased to present "Ride for Amirah" and ask you to join them in their efforts to support Amirah and survivors of human trafficking.
Please join "Ride for Amirah" as a rider or ride sponsor and help Amirah serve survivors of human trafficking.
