Help Provide Economic Empowerment to Trafficking Survivors

Nani Cuadrado, assistant professor in the DeSales PA Program, is going on a mission trip to El Salvador in March with fellow Valley Against Sex Trafficking (VAST) volunteer Cat Rojas. They are partnering with Free The Girls, a non-profit organization that helps women rescued from sex trafficking in developing countries like El Salvador and Mozambique to re-enter the workforce selling bras in the second-hand clothing markets. Help provide economic empowerment to survivors of sex trafficking by donating a gently-used bra and a buck.

Drop-off Tuesday-Friday, 7:30 a.m. – 5:00 p.m. in the Gambet Center Office 105 now through Friday, March 3, 2017 at 5:00 p.m.
