Advocacy

This is a resource of organizations, policy, people, movements, and petitions in need of your attention!

Current Petitions:

“He was murdered by Phoenix police officers for trying to use a public restroom—help us finally get justice for Muhammad!

Zephaniah Defense Fund (16 Year Old Child Sex Trafficking Survivor)

“Zephi is 16 years old and is a junior in high school. She is currently charged with capital murder and aggravated robbery.

Zephi had been forced, a number of times, to participate in sexual acts with adults by her trafficker. Ultimately, this cycle of abuse ended with her trafficker killing a man that Zephi was being forced to perform sexual acts with.

She has been in the Henry Wade Juvenile Justice facility since last fall awaiting trial. Even though the District Attorney’s office has been made aware that Zephi was being forced to perform sexual acts on adults due to threats of harm by her trafficker if she tried to leave him.”
