Human Trafficking Awareness Month Annual Toiletry Drive

HTAM_Final_English_2017.jpg

Every year I partner with key service organizations that work with victims of human trafficking, to provide them with toiletries.

When a girl or woman is rescued from human trafficking, she often comes with little more than the clothes she’s wearing.  That’s why the toiletry drive is so important.  Giving these women the hygiene and toiletry items she needs often makes a huge difference in helping her feel some level of comfort and normalcy return to her life.

We could really use your help as we hope to exceed last year’s successful drive.  We need things like shampoo, toothbrushes, tampons, deodorant, etc.  You can drop these items off at any one of my offices, or at bins throughout City Hall.  I hope you’ll join me and give a little to help these women.

This year’s donations will go to two incredible organizations:  Journey Out and Saving Innocence.  Both groups serve women and girls in Los Angeles.
