Chocolate Moses suggests the following organizations as worthy recipients of your tzedakah. Each organization does crucial work to end modern slavery and human trafficking and to create labor justice for all:
Truah (formerly Rabbis for Human Rights-North America) Truah mobilizes rabbis and their communities to protect human rights, trains rabbis and rabbinical students to be strong human rights leaders, and promote rabbis and cantors as moral voices on the most crucial issues of the day. Truah is a strong voice in the Jewish community on the issue of modern slavery and trafficking, partnering with the Coalition of Immokalee Workers to end slavery and labor injustice in the tomato fields.
Atzum In the past decade, approximately 25,000 women, nearly all from the Former Soviet Union, were smuggled into Israel to be brutalized as sex slaves. As a partner in Israel’s Task Force on Human Trafficking, Atzum is working to end trafficking and slavery in Israel. They work to engage and educate the public and government agencies to confront and eradicate modern slavery in Israel, and lobbies for reform in the areas of prevention, border closure, protection of escaped women, and prosecution of traffickers and pimps.
Free the Slaves Founded by leading scholar and abolitionist Dr. Kevin Bales, Free the Slaves acts, educates and advocates as one of the most-established organizations in the fight against slavery. Everything they do is weighed against one simple question: Will this free slaves and help them to stay free?
Polaris Project One of the leading organizations against human trafficking and modern slavery, Polaris Project is transforming the way that individuals and communities respond to human trafficking in the U.S. and globally. By successfully pushing for stronger federal and state laws, operating the National Human Trafficking Resource Center hotline (1-888-373-7888), conducting trainings, and providing vital services to victims of trafficking, Polaris Project creates long-term solutions that move our society closer to a world without slavery.
