Sixteen-year-old human trafficking victim Sara Kruzan was sentenced to life in prison without parole when, in a desperate act to escape captivity, she shot her pimp.

What is injustice? This.

This is completely unjust. Please read this woman’s story and sign the petition urging the Governator to release her. Sixteen years in prison for what amounts to an act of self-defense is far, far too long.

This is horrible. Sign, people, please..

Silencing Human Trafficking Victims in America 

Thanks to a wave of anti-immigrant proposals in state legislatures across the nation, fear of deportation and family separation has forced many immigrant women to stay silent rather than report workplace abuse and exploitation to authorities. The courts have weakened some of these laws and the most controversial pieces of Arizona’s SB 1070 law have been suspended. Unfortunately, America’s anti-immigrant fervor continues to boil.

As a social worker, I’ve counseled both U.S.-born and foreign-born women who have experienced domestic violence, or have been assaulted by either their employers or the people who brought them to the United States. I’m increasingly alarmed by this harsh immigration enforcement climate because of its psychological impact on families and the new challenge to identify survivors of crime who are now too afraid to come forward.
