This morning, over 30 million women and children woke up without the choice of what they’ll do, or who touches their body. That’s as if every person in the state of Texas was enslaved.

This January, for National Slavery and Human Trafficking Prevention Month, we want to share the realities of trafficking and how you can fight trafficking in your day-to-day life. Join us this month for our new series, Myth Busting Monday: The Truth about Trafficking.

Follow along on social media to see the weekly videos, or watch the full interview here ⬇️

When we think of fighting against trafficking we often think of needing more Liam Neesans to go in, break down the brothel doors, take these women who are chained to beds, and get them OUT!

Or, maybe we need to prosecute more people, or work harder to change unjust laws. 

These are a necessary part, but it’s not getting to the deeper roots of these problems.

 

80% of women who escape end up being re-trafficked because they don’t find a safe and meaningful job. A good job is the number one way to prevent women from having to turn towards trafficking in the first place.

It’s issues of poverty, issues of debt, issues of unemployment and desperation that puts women at risk of trafficking in the first place and creates the global cycles of trafficking.

That’s what we’re doing at Dignity.

We built our plant in a poor, rural area of the Philippines, where families are exploited, in order to create safe jobs and fair trade so women to create a flourishing life without turning to desperate measures.
