MESSAGE FROM OUR CEO...
LEHIGH VALLEY ANTI-TRAFFICKING WEEK
This week is the 2nd annual Lehigh Valley Anti-Trafficking (LVAT) week. It is a seven day awareness campaign that launched in 2019 and provides an opportunity to raise awareness about human trafficking and modern day slavery. Its purpose is to encourage government, local authorities, companies, charities, and individuals to do what they can to address the problem. 

The Lehigh Valley Anti-Trafficking Collaborative is comprised of several social justice organizations dedicated to fighting for justice on the front lines and include: Aspire to Autonomy, Bethlehem Rotary, Bloom, Crime Victims Council, LVHN Street Medicine, Marsy’s Law, Truth for Women, VAST (The Valley Against Sex Trafficking), and Valley Youth House.

We plan make continual updates to this site to provide more educational information about the sex trafficking industry, as well as more stories about our survivors and how you can get involved in supporting our mission. Thank you to Justin Corsa and his team at Enter.net.
EVENTS...
4TH ANNUAL TASTING FOR TRUTH FUNDRAISER
Our 4th Annual Tasting for Truth held on October 24 was an amazing night with close to 200 attendees who were able to enjoy an evening of tasty food, nice conversation and live music. Although there was a chill in the air, everyone's hearts were warmed by Alyssa (a survivor) as she shared her remarkable story of having been trafficked right here in the Lehigh Valley. 
This year has been filled with challenges and, as a result, many homes like ours have closed. Events like Tasting for Truth help raise necessary resources to provide sanctuary and emergency stabilization for survivors of sex trafficking in the Lehigh Valley. We greatly appreciate organizations and individuals that stepped up to sponsor this event, such as our Title Sponsor, the Kiel Group.
 
Unfortunately, we did not reach our fundraising goal of $50,000 for this event. Our work depends entirely on the generosity of individuals who understand the importance of creating safe and healing spaces for victims of this horrific injustice. So please, if possible, give your best tax-deductible gift today using the secure link below. With your help, we will tirelessly continue to provide restoration to survivors like Alyssa as they build new lives and meaningful futures.  
And, we can't forget to acknowledge all of the wonderful organizations and individuals that sponsored our event, as well as Sally Ryan and the host committee for putting the event together. Thank you!

Thank you to our sponsors!
