Civil Lawyers Against World Sex Slavery

We are pleased to be involved in this new organization that uses civil legal remedies as a powerful tool for survivors of sex trafficking seeking redress from their traffickers. The targets include not only handlers, but the institutions that enable sex trafficking, including those who pay for sex and the venues which facilitate it. The problem is that while survivors may have access to victim compensation funds or restitution, often the amount authorized under these types of statutes is not enough to compensate the survivor for all the harm suffered. Depending on state law, survivors may be able to seek: compensatory damages, punitive damages, injunctive relief, and attorney’s fees. Additionally, some statutes allow courts to award treble damages in aggravated cases.

Drinking and Driving

A leading cause of death for 16 through 21 year olds in the United States is alcohol related traffic accidents. We want to help teens learn to make wise choices about alcohol.

A survey funded by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation reports:

  • 62% of youth report that they have been intoxicated
  • 23% of youth have experienced episodic heavy drinking
  • 26% of youth drank before age 13
  • 40% of youth drink alcohol

Other youth research groups also report these frightening statistics:

  • 1 out of every 5 persons will be involved in an alcohol-related automobile accident
  • A person dies in an alcohol-related collision every 22 minutes
  • More than 50% of the nation's junior and senior high school students drink alcoholic beverages
