Long Island Against Trafficking (LIAT) is a volunteer-based coalition.
We will use our voices for the enslaved, to assist the victims of human trafficking by providing aftercare support, and to create awareness within our community for the need of justice.
Long Island Against Trafficking was founded when a group of individuals were awakened to the realities of human sex trafficking while attending a lecture. The words of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., "Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about things that matter" resonated in our hearts and minds. We were compelled to join in the fight for those sex trafficked on Long Island and abroad. Long Island Against Trafficking was established to raise funds for those victimized and raise public awareness of this modern-day form of slavery. We accomplish this by speaking at public and private events as well as lobbying at the local, state, and federal levels. We plan and host fundraisers to aid in financially supporting the victims. We also partner with other human rights organizations to create a powerful collective voice. To date, LIAT has raised more than $750,000 towards the aid of trafficking victims.
We are a completely volunteer-based organization of passionate individuals who want to see change in our communities. Please join us in our goal to abolish sex trafficking.
The group is always looking for new members. If you are interested in volunteering to be a voice for the voiceless or you would like a member to do some guest speaking, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
