Hope Rising

In our beautiful region there is an ugly truth – our area is a hot spot for human trafficking. The Center for Justice & Reconciliation (CJR) at Point Loma Nazarene University is a leading regional and national voice confronting human trafficking. Join us as we raise funds to support the CJR’s work.

Your presence at Hope Rising is an investment in the anti-trafficking work of the CJR. The heart of our efforts includes Research, Education and Advocacy. Funds raised will support the CJR, with an emphasis on:

Beauty for Ashes Scholarship Fund
The Beauty for Ashes Scholarship Fund was created by PLNU to fund college education for survivors of human trafficking. We believe so strongly that there is hope and a future for survivors that we come alongside their pursuit of a new life. Currently three students are supported by the Fund. Your contribution will help us open the door for the many survivors hoping for such a future.

kNOw MORE Curriculum
The CJR is leading a collaboration to design and implement a peer-to-peer human trafficking awareness curriculum to reach the hearts and minds of our region’s youth. The CJR brought together the San Diego Unified School District, the County Office of Education, Child Welfare Services, artists, survivor service agencies and survivors themselves. Your support will allow us to continue to take the program to schools all across San Diego County.
