Move Your Body. Change A Life.
Move your body. Change a Life.
We believe that changing a life can be as simple as moving your body.
Every day during the month of May, we are inviting you to move. You can run, walk, dance, cycle, or participate in any other fitness activity all to support girls who have been rescued from human trafficking and prevent it from happening to others in the future. This is your opportunity to bring attention to this grave injustice with something so simple, but so important to each of our daily lives, movement.
Movement for Freedom was created in 2015 as a way for individuals and teams to give back to the life-changing work of My Refuge House through exercise and movement.
My Refuge House is a 501(c)(3) non-profit that restores survivors of online sexual exploitation of children (OSEC), commercial sexual exploitation (CSE), and abuse. My Refuge House is dedicated to providing the best comprehensive and therapeutic care so that each girl can stand on her own. We believe a loving and caring atmosphere is the foundation for any healing environment. There is a family-like environment between staff and girls that draws upon Filipino culture through family meetings, outings, and activities. Since 2008, we have provided long-term aftercare for over 40 survivors as they reclaim their lives. In 2015, we added another home to increase long-term capacity, created a transition program for our older girls, and began a community outreach program focused on prevention and advocacy.
