As International Justice Mission (IJM) and Public Interest Law Students Association (PILSA) on Florida State University's campus, we are partnering with The Big Bend Coalition Against Human Trafficking (BBCAHT) and hosting a 5K race in which the proceeds will benefit The Porch Light, a safe home for adolescent victims of sex trafficking.
The Porch Light is an in-state safe home for adolescent female victims of sex trafficking. They provide shelter, attend to medical, physical,and emotional needs, have trauma-informed counseling, and an environment that promotes healing and restoration. This safe home is at an undisclosed location for the protection and security of the victims, and is staffed by a director, mental health counselor and female caregivers.
As FSU's chapter of IJM, we not only want to make a difference internationally with our advocacy and efforts for human rights, but we want to promote change and healing domestically. That is why ALL proceeds will go to this in-state nonprofit.
Please join us as we walk/run to support this organization that is so valuable and so needed. You CAN make a difference in these girls' lives.
T-Shirts will be guaranteed to each participant if they are signed up by 01/06/2017.
