RISE is a student-run organization that strives to educate people on the impact human trafficking can take on victims and the community it is prevalent in. Human trafficking and sexual crimes are devastating problems that are prevalent all over the world, however, many people are unaware of the impact they create on victims and the communities they are present in. Human trafficking is defined as the action or practice of illegally transporting people from one country or area to another, typically for the purposes of forced labor or sexual exploitation. Sex crimes, such as rape, also leave a scar on the victim especially because most rapists are present in the victim’s everyday life. We want to educate people about the statistics, warning signs, and help people speak out about their experiences. Our goals for making this impact are to send care packages to victims/to larger organizations, so they can distribute them, to help victims speak out on their experiences to punish their predators and help them return to a fairly normal life, educating people to help them avoid these situations and protect themselves in case of an unfortunate situation where they are trapped in something similar. We will use the money you donate to make donations to victims and other organizations and fund ourselves to expand RISE and make it more impactful.
