Help to raise our voices and support programs to create freedom from violence.

FREEDOM FROM VIOLENCE

On average, 24 women per minute are victims of intimate partner violence. One in three women will experience physical or sexual violence in their lifetime, and one in three girls will experience childhood sexual abuse.
In collaboration with One Billion Rising and other community partners we identify actions and invest in programs to create freedom from violence.

Stop Sex Trafficking Miami

Sex trafficking of children is the darkest, most brutal and hidden place in our community. Most of our community has been lulled by the myth that sex trafficking is something that happens in far away places, beyond our community and our responsibility.

But the truth is, sex trafficking of children is flourishing, literally, in our own backyards. Because this horrific child abuse has remained hidden, unaddressed and misunderstood, it flourishes with impunity. Public awareness is the linchpin to ending this scourge.

Led by The Women’s Fund Miami-Dade, Stop Sex Trafficking Miami is a community awareness campaign that will engender the community together.

Pulling Back the Curtains

We live in an amazing community, with lots of engaged, well-intentioned and well-informed people who care about their families, neighbors and community. And yet, most of our community does not yet know that vulnerable children in our community are being targeted and lured by manipulative traffickers that groom them to be sexually exploited. We need to pull back the curtains so that this most horrific child abuse cannot exist and thrive in the darkest corners of our community.
