Our response to this as a nation has been unacceptable. Starting right here, right now we are going to change everything, one community at a time.
Here is what we are doing about it: We are building a community called Mariah's House.
Mariah's House will provide emergency secured group housing for women and child survivors of human trafficking in Las Vegas.
We will provide food, shelter, clothing, legal assistance, job training and other social services.
Our goal is to empower survivors to leave their victim status behind so that they may become emotionally and financially self-sufficient.
This is a social venture where survivors become trained, paid partners, spreading the movement until we are a force of feminine power so strong that no one would dare try to buy and sell our women and children. It's TIME!
Thank you in advance for your generous support.
