National Human Trafficking Awareness Month

January is National Human Trafficking Awareness Month. What can you do to take a stand and help raise awareness? Restore Corps is inviting the community to join the fight to end human trafficking by asking for ideas to fill each day in January with an event designed to facilitate awareness of the issue.

Community Effort

We plan to offer an event every day in January to bring the issue to the community, and we are seeking help from the community to fill the calendar. Currently we are planning to host or speak at the following events or places:

  • January 10: Lives Worth Saving

  • January 11: National Human Trafficking Awareness Day

    • University of Memphis Human Trafficking Conference

    • Appreciation Luncheon for West TN anti-trafficking agencies

    • Organizations across Memphis will post and tag RC for the awareness campaign

  • January 12: Iota Phi Theta Fraternity Panel

  • January 13: Immanuel Lutheran Church

  • January 19: Mental Health Awareness Event

  • January 20: Christ Community Church

  • January 24: Rotary Memphis Whitehaven South Human Trafficking Event

  • January 30: University of Memphis Primary Prevention of Sexual & Domestic Violence Conference

Anyone and any organization can help fill the days with events, large and small, to assist survivors, increase awareness, or raise funds. Some ideas for individuals and groups are:

  • Partner with local musicians for a benefit concert

  • Get service hours by packing toiletry bags for survivors who live at our residential facility

  • Host a gift card drive for survivors

  • Host a community fitness class with a suggested donation at the door

  • Book a speaker for your group or class to discuss signs of trafficking and what to do

  • Assign a relevant book to your reading club, and invite a Restore Corps representative to facilitate the discussion (contact Restore Corps for suggested titles)

  • Host a movie night to view a film about trafficking and invite a Restore Corps representative to facilitate a discussion (contact Restore Corps for suggested films)

We are open to any ideas you may have to fill the month of January with events that show that Memphis is committed to fighting human trafficking. Please contact us with your suggestions, or to request a speaker.

Fundraising

On January 11, 2019, the nation will recognize a day to spread awareness that Human Trafficking is an epidemic in the United States. During the month of January, our goal is to recruit 111 donors who pledge to give $19 a month during 2019. 

We invite you to partner with us in our goal, and help completely fund our residential housing for 2019. Thank you for your generosity and your work to #RESTOREHOPE.
