Move for Amirah is here!
Our third annual "Move for Amirah" will be taking place from June 24th – July 3rd. We are asking people to "Move" on behalf of survivors – walking, running, biking, swimming, etc. We move to illustrate the fact that recovering from trafficking and exploitation is hard. It's like attempting to swim the English Channel or running a marathon. It requires grit and courage.
Will you move in solidarity with these courageous women? By moving, you help raise awareness and funds to support women on their recovery journeys.
Last year, we set out to raise $25,000 and you raised $35,790! This year, we hope to raise $30,000. We're can't wait to see how you decide to "Move!"

Why Move for Amirah?
Trafficking and exploitation is an enormous issue that cannot be faced alone. When many people step up and make a move to support survivors, we find strength in numbers!
Did you know that less than 1% of trafficking victims ever exit exploitation?
The primary reason is a severe lack of “exit ramps” – opportunities for the exploited to get away from their traffickers. Amirah is that exit ramp! When you support Amirah, you support a woman’s recovery process to regain her life. Soon, that 1% will be a tragic figure from a distant past.
