Rising International

Walk to stop human trafficking. Human trafficking is a global phenomenon that is fueled by poverty and gender discrimination. The highest numbers of human trafficking cases reported in the U.S. are in California, almost double of any other state. From a local survivor: “I endured unspeakable levels of trauma. Rising International’s program doesn’t just keep us in survivor mode, it reveals our truest identity as conquerors, victors and overcomers. We will not give up. We need family. We need friends. We cannot fight the war against darkness without your support. You are beyond instrumental to our healing and success as entrepreneurs, and as successful women. We love to contribute back to our community and globe as much as you do, and we promise that we will do so with every ounce of our being. We will never ever forget you and we will sing hallelujah for eternity with the angels over how you displayed shocking kindness and compassion.” Funds raised will help us expand our human trafficking prevention program, as well as our economic empowerment program for survivors, both locally and globally. Thank you for creating a world where women and girls matter!
