    Digging In: The MY SISTER Mission

    We’re here to empower sex trafficking survivors and crush the systems that exploit girls and women. By funding job training and employment opportunities we support our sisters as they take back their lives. With every item sold, we’re arming survivors with a chance. With every item worn, we’re making it known we won’t back down.

    This is our “official” mission statement. But what does it mean? Learn more.

    Report Released on Sex Trafficking Hotline Statistics: What We Learned
    Polaris is a leader in providing services to those who are trying to leave a trafficker. Their number (1-888-373-7888) can be the first someone may call or text (233733) for help. They recently released their annual report outlining statistics from last year. They reached more people and provided assistance to so many, but the new data they shared also details the reality of a significant increase in reported cases, which means there’s a lot to be done to help stop sex trafficking.

    Profile of a Sex Buyer

    Who is Buying Sex?
    Who buys sex? The answer to this question is not easy to find due to the stigmas and laws that surround it. More often than not, the stigma is directed toward the trafficked person and not the buyer. We live in a culture that supports exploitation in many ways and also in one that shames the survivor through hurtful language. But we don’t have to continue to support this culture and we can change the conversation. Through exploring what data is available and through the stories of survivors, a clearer picture is painted of who is buying and what that means for society.

    Survivor Story Three: Damita

    Survivor Story Three: Damita

    Throughout the month of January, to recognize Human Trafficking Awareness Month, we have shared the stories of survivors of sex trafficking. Jenny, Laurie, and now Damita, were brave enough to tell us what the it was like before, during, and after being in the life. Each survivor finds their own path to breaking free, each survivor experiences their own setbacks and challenges. But meeting Damita today, you would not know about her struggles by speaking with her. Her confidence and determination are clear and it’s hard to imagine a time where she wasn’t exactly who she is today. We thank all of the survivors for sharing their stories with us and we challenge you to remember them throughout the year and not only during a specific month or on a particular day. Take a stand against sex trafficking every day.

    Trigger warning: many events and descriptions in the following story are graphic and may be triggering for some readers.

    This third and final story in our series belongs to Damita.

    A Survivor’s Story: Jenny

    A Survivor's Story - Jenny
    Every survivor’s story is different. The month of January is Human Trafficking Awareness Month, we’re using this time to educate the community about what a survivor endures, their path to breaking free, and how you can help. We will be sharing the stories of three survivors over the next three weeks. Each survivor has come forward with a unique experience and a different story, broken down into three parts: before, during, and after trafficking. One thing remains constant in each story, a trafficker used power and control to keep someone in the life. The women we are featuring were made to feel like products and not people, it needs to end. Read Jenny's story.
