A criminal record can make it hard to find housing, get a job, or access to needed resources. Sex trafficking survivors who were forced or coerced into breaking the law may be eligible to have their criminal records cleared. If you need legal representation, contact us today.

Just a few weeks ago, a 24-year-old mother was arrested for leaving her children alone while she worked, inspiring spirited internet discussion. Why does our legal system punish struggling families for being low income? How will jail or the money spent on a court case help this mother and her children? Let’s move this conversation to our local representatives so we can make policy changes that better support children and families.

You don’t have to go into politics or government to make a difference. Photographer Gordon Parks (1912 - 2006) was the first Black man to be a part of the staff of Life magazine, and was responsible for some of the amazing images in Vogue over the years. In a 1999 interview, he explained his passion for photography: “I saw that the camera could be a weapon against poverty, against racism, against all sorts of social wrongs. I knew at that point I had to have a camera.”

Your passion, hobby, and/or career can make a difference.

Last month, we accepted the resignation of our Executive Director, Llamilet Gutierrez. Llamilet has been a champion for Amara for the last few years, leading our organization through a period of growth and improvements. We are truly grateful for her service and drive to make an impact.

In the coming weeks, we’ll be looking for a demonstrated and dynamic leader to take on the executive director role come February. The ideal candidate should be passionate about social justice and committed to fostering a positive and inclusive culture among colleagues that reflect Amara’s commitment to diversity and racial equity.

You can find the full job description via the link in our bio.
