For many people, the idea of making an actual difference feels impossible and out of reach. When you donate to an organization, it is tough to know where your money goes, and that is why Dressember makes it a priority to ensure your gifts go toward life-changing efforts truly aiding the fight for human dignity.
When you donate to (or fundraise on behalf of) Dressember, you are a part of large, anti-trafficking grants that provide our partners with grants that move the needle forward toward actual change. Our community is passionate about saving lives, and so are we. This is why we believe it is important for our advocates and donors to know their efforts are being poured directly into the most impactful projects and programs in fight for freedom.
together, Change is possible.
By participating in Dressember, advocates partner in the fight to rescue, protect, and restore the lives of trafficking victims across the world. Funds raised through Dressember provide the means to create and build victim relief programs that make a lasting impact. Here are some of the ways your generosity is changing lives:
Our partners work closely with law enforcement to identify, protect, and free people who have been forced into the commercial sex trade. They also work to train law enforcement, hospital staff, and transportation authorities to identify conspicuous signs of slavery.
We facilitate collaborative work with legal authorities to build strong cases against traffickers, pimps, and criminals, and ensure that all victims are well represented in court.
We know that every survivor deserves unique, individual treatment. Survivors are provided with access to housing, medical treatment, as well as individualized trauma counseling, vocational opportunities, and education.
