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.

After George Floyd’s murder this year, Amara made a public commitment to putting racial equity at the forefront of both our internal and external policies. As an anti-racist organization, our staff, and board team underwent trainings with Service Never Sleeps on white Supremacy and being an ally; we are prioritizing diversity in our recruitment and in creating equitable advancement structures; and we continue to keep racial justice at the forefront of our staff meetings and in our strategic planning. Amara is committed to building community power and dedicated to having those with lived experiences as sex workers and trafficking survivors lead Amara’s trajectory.

We’ve made an impact on over 500 clients’ lives and will continue to do so, but we can’t do it alone. Let’s make it happen, together!

There has been a large increase in reported cases of trafficking. Survivors face many obstacles when seeking assistance, and leaving a trafficking situation is the most dangerous time for them. Your donation can help survivors obtain legal assistance and make structural changes that help ease the burden on survivors! Share our posts, donate, and speak up about the changes that need to be made to our social and legal systems to ensure survivors are able to lead self-empowered lives!

22,326 is only the number of trafficking survivors identified by Polaris in 2019. As we’ve mentioned before, 2020 has changed the trafficking landscape, putting even more people at risk as they are stuck at home with their abusers or forced to work further underground.

Donate to the No Show Ball until December 31st to support legal representation for survivors, advocacy work, training for organizations, and more. Link in bio.

Last month, you probably saw lots of posts about couples, relationship goals, and talk about dating. Don’t let social media pressure you into a relationship if you’re not sure you’re ready for one, and especially if there are red flags present. Move at your own pace. There’s nothing wrong with focusing on yourself and being single.

Want to be extra safe when dating online? Get a free Google Voice phone number and keep your personal number secure. With the Google Voice app, you can check your calls, voicemails, and messages without giving out your real number. You can also block anyone who comes across as sketchy.

Amara welcomes Sarah Zalonis to the Board of Directors. Sarah is committed to addressing #injustices around women's rights, #sextrafficking, #indigenous rights, politics, and first-person narrative.

“It’s not enough for trafficking survivors to merely survive the horrific experience of exploitation but there has to be a justice component otherwise it is not freedom at all.”

Did you know that name and gender marker changes are public record? That means all someone needs to see your record is internet access, which can completely defeat the purpose for many of our clients.

Our clients are consistently subject to harassment due to their gender identity and are discriminated against in their jobs and in housing because employers and landlords can see their name/gender marker change record. We work through the process so they can have a fully realized new beginning, participating in society without fear.

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.
