Human Trafficking Survivor Honorarium FundProject led by Eyes Up Appalachia
About the project.
Those that work in anti-human trafficking efforts are not able to do it effectively without input and advice from those that have survived being trafficked. Yet for so long survivors have been asked to volunteer their time to speak to our communities and advise on how to proceed in prevention efforts. Consultants are used to help us in other areas of business, we should do the same for survivors. This fund will be used to reimburse survivors that act in an advisory capacity to Eyes Up Appalachia to better focus outreach and programming. It will also be used to offer honorariums to those that are invited to speak at public forums to better educate the community through their eyes.
FAO staff comments.
This program would allow Eyes Up Appalachia to provide honorariums to survivors of Human Trafficking who share their experience with the organization and the public to better educate the community about human trafficking in the region through their experiences, making Appalachian Ohio a safer place for us all.
