Polaris Project and Not For Sale Update

The Polaris Project has announced the implementation of a national database to aid in the fight against human trafficking. They have partnered with LexisNexis in creating this database and look to it to assist the National Trafficking Resource Center (NHTRC). The NHTRC runs the national human trafficking tipline for the U.S. For more information on this exciting project, click here.

The Not for Sale campaign is joining forces with MISSSEY to offer their first Innovative Aftercare Training from July 27th to the 31st, 2009 in San Francisco, CA. This training is open to the first 26 applicants and is being offered on a first come, first served basis. If you have a heart to care for those who have been victims of modern day slavery, this training will give you the tools and instruction you need to become a "smart activist" on their behalf.

If I could, I'd be there in a heartbeat. This is not the year for me to be spending money on these things, though.

You can click here to get the details or email aftercare@notforsalecampaign.org for more information and an application. If you go, please let me know how it went when you get home!
