Soroptimists STOP Trafficking
About this program
Slavery is a harsh reality for millions of people the world over who find themselves trapped in an exploitative and abusive system, bought and sold like objects, and treated with no dignity or human decency.
In 2007, Soroptimist launched a major campaign— Soroptimists STOPTrafficking—aimed at raising awareness about the devastating practice of sex
trafficking. Soroptimist clubmembers place sex slavery awareness cards in highly visible locations including police stations, women’s centers, hospitals, legal aid societies, etc. The program has evolved to include a multi-dimensional approach to end sex trafficking including raising awareness, assisting victims, preventing sexual slavery, and advocating for better laws and enforcement.
