Human trafficking can feel like an overwhelming evil – it can be difficult to see the difference that one person can make. But this Christmas time, you can give a victim of human trafficking the extraordinary gift of hope.
You could help reunite even more families torn apart by exploitation and trafficking, and support survivors as they begin to heal. Whatever you are able to give will make a significant difference to people’s lives and ensure their futures are filled with hope.
Why donate cryptocurrency to Hope for Justice?
Hope for Justice is a non-profit working to bring an end to human trafficking, to rescue the victims and provide the best possible aftercare.
Our model is based on four pillars: preventing exploitation; rescuing victims; restoring lives; and reforming society. Founded in 2008, Hope for Justice has grown to become a global organization with programs in the US and across five continents. We work directly with victims and survivors here and around the world while also campaigning for long-term change through our work with governments, law enforcement, businesses and people just like you.
You can be part of ending human trafficking.
What is human trafficking?
Human trafficking is a crime that involves exploiting a person for labor, services, or commercial sex. It is a type of modern slavery, which is an umbrella term encompassing slavery, servitude, forced or compulsory labor as well as human trafficking. Victims are unable to leave their situation of exploitation and are controlled by threats, punishment, violence, coercion, and deception.
It is happening all around us, with an estimated 24.9 million victims globally (plus 15.4 million people in forced marriages). There are thought to be up to 403,000 people affected in the US (Source: Walk Free Foundation, Global Slavery Index, 2018)
