Before I got involved with Reclaim13 and joined the Dance for Freedom Project, I didn’t know very much about sex trafficking and exploitation. At the time I was still a high school student and the same age as many of the young people being helped by Reclaim13. The reality of it hit me hard. It was really painful to look around my classroom at the other girls and to think that the same kind of abuse might be happening to them. I knew almost immediately that I had to do something to help in whatever way I was able. That’s when I made the decision to become a volunteer.
Today I am the co-owner of the Dance for Freedom Project, a fundraising effort designed to spread awareness of human trafficking through dance. As a part of Reclaim13, we work to promote better understanding of the issue while raising funds for Cherish House. In the time that I’ve been involved with Reclaim13, I’ve gone from knowing almost nothing about the issue to managing Dance for Freedom social media, and operating our monthly dance party fundraisers. Since we started the project, attendance at our events has grown significantly. It’s been a privilege and a joy to be able to use my love of dance to help more people become informed about Reclaim13’s work and about the reality and significance of sexual exploitation in our society.
We’re empowering donors to drive awareness to our mission. Wear these items often but especially on the 13th of every month.
