Summary

Aura Freedom's counter-trafficking work is focused on an upstream, intersectional feminist approach by addressing root causes, upholding human rights and advancing equity. This approach is the framework of our ground-breaking online Human Trafficking Info Hub, and is reflected across our workshops and consultations for GBV sector workers, frontline staff, school boards, government, educators, youth, the private sector and more.

Challenge

Human trafficking for sex is one of the most extreme forms of gender-based violence and disproportionately affects women and girls. Canada is no different. Marginalized and racializedwomen and girls experience added layers of discrimination and barriers to support, as well as youth in care and youth with mental health issues. Indigenous, Black, and other racialized women and girls often lack social supports, leaving room for exploitation under the guise of love, community and a better life.

Solution

Aura Freedom's counter-trafficking work stresses the importance of empowering people with knowledge to make safe and healthy decisions in their lives and reach out for support. Our work aims to prevent human trafficking by advancing equity. Addressing the root causes of GBV and human trafficking is a fundamental part of Aura Freedom's work. As an organization, we go deep. Why? Because if we do not address the root causes, then we will simply be doing damage control for the rest of our lives.

Long-Term Impact

Gender-based violence is a very old story of who is valued more, and who is valued less. It thrives in conditions of inequity. The antidotes of education. Education is key. And although we might not be able to see it working in real time, it is RIGHT. Youth are agents of change. The ripple effects of inclusive and intersectional education for youth that addresses the root causes of violence/exploitation will be seen for generations to come. THAT is how we create systemic, long-lasting change.
