THE STORY:

Hi Friends! I am very excited to be running the marathon to benefit Sanctuary for Families.  Sanctuary for Families is a great organization (see description below) that works very closely with Cleary Gottlieb Steen & Hamilton LLP, who provides pro bono legal services to individuals who reach out to Sanctuary for Families.  Many organizations in the U.S. are not allowed to provide pro bono legal services to undocumented immigrants if the organization receives federal funding.  Therefore, Sanctuary for Families depends on private donations to be able to assist undocumented immigrants who have been victims of violence or sex trafficking gain legal status in the U.S.   This year I have had the opportunity to work in a case that has really touched me.  Vianey is a young Mexican woman who was trafficked to the U.S. and was forced to work as a sexual worker.  After two years of being completely enslaved by her trafficker, her and her trafficker were arrested in New York, because, as you know, prostitution is a crime, even for women who are forced into the profession. Thanks to her cooperation with the authorities in the prosecution of her trafficker, her record was expunged and she has managed to begin rebuilding her life.  She met a wonderful partner and just had a baby girl in December.  She found a job and she is slowly integrating herself in society and recovering from the horrible experience she went through.  I am working on a team that is helping her apply for a T-Visa, a visa granted to people who have been victims of sex trafficking.  We are also helping Vianey prepare an impact statement to speak at the sentencing hearing of her trafficker, in the hopes that sharing her experience with the court will result in a punishment that matches the seriousness of his offense.  Through donations like yours, Sanctuary for Families is able to continue this important work.

2013 marks the fifth year that Sanctuary for Families will field a Charity Partner team for the ING NYC Marathon.  Last year, the marathon team raised nearly $100,000 in support of our work with survivors of domestic violence, sex trafficking, and related forms of gender violence.  Thanks for joining us to support the 2013 Marathon Team!
