Projects

 
 
 

There are several projects that are supported by Soroptimist International of the Americas.


STOP Trafficking 

The goal of Soroptimists STOP Trafficking is to raise awareness about sex trafficking. To that end, Soroptimist has developed a card that provides information about the sex trafficking of women and girls. The information is provided in a simple and powerful way that will encourage readers to get involved by visiting the SIA web site to learn more about how to end sex trafficking. The cards are designed to be handed out at any time of the year, but especially on December 2nd the International Day for the Abolition of Slavery and/or January 11th the National Day of Human Trafficking Awareness (U.S. onlly) In 2014 SI White Rock showed a film on Sex Trafficking, as well as collected Bras to send to Free the Girls an organization that assists women in Africa and South America that have been rescued from sex trafficking.


Workplace Campaign to End Domestic Violence

This campaign is an ongoing effort to raise awareness about a little addressed domestic violence issue: domestic violence as a workplace concern. The federation provides information and materials for clubs to participate in the program. The materials include copy-ready hotline cards with the recommendation that clubs distribute them in women’s rest rooms in a workplace setting. These cards encourage people to visit the SIA web site to learn more about how they can address workplace domestic violence.
