When you donate to an organization, we understand that it can be tough to know exactly where your money goes. That’s why transparency is our priority; we are intentional in ensuring your gifts are applied directly to efforts aiding the fight for freedom.
When you donate to (or fundraise on behalf of) Dressember, you are a part of strategic anti-trafficking grants that provide our partners with the funds to move the needle toward change.
Our Five Key Criteria
To ensure that your gift is making a long lasting difference, we vet our partners annually through the following criteria:
Partners who understand the complexity of the issue and seek to empower others and work together toward an end to this injustice
Partners who seek to understand and work with locals who understand an area's nuances and culture on a deeper level
Work that is proven to protect victims, increase convictions of perpetrators, and/or prevent the spread of slavery
TOGETHER, CHANGE IS HAPPENING.
By participating in Dressember, you directly impact the fight to rescue, protect, and restore the lives of trafficking victims worldwide. Funds raised through Dressember provide the means to create and build victim relief programs with our partners. Here are some of the ways your generosity is changing lives:
With your help, we are funding empowerment programs that support young people living in group homes, foster care, and at-risk communities. These programs provide education, life and job skills training, and counseling services.
Our partners work closely with law enforcement to identify, protect, and free people who have been forced into the commercial sex trade. They also train law enforcement, hospital staff, and transportation authorities to identify conspicuous signs of slavery.
We know that every survivor deserves unique, individual treatment. Survivors are provided with access to housing, medical treatment, as well as individualized trauma therapy, vocational opportunities, and education.
