Our nonprofit of the month for September is MISSSEY: Motivating, Inspiring, Supporting & Serving Sexually Exploited Youth. Since 2007, MISSSEY has devoted its energy to the heartbreaking epidemic of commercial sexual exploitation by supporting and advocating for youth who are victims of child sex trafficking. They are a survivor-centered, trauma-informed organization confronting the commercial sexual exploitation of children (CSEC) in Oakland, in Alameda County, and throughout California.
MISSSEY envisions a world without commercial sexual exploitation of children and they exist to provide services to commercially sexually exploited victims and work for systemic change on behalf of the youth they serve.
Please join us on September 27th from 4-7pm at the Oaklandish downtown store at 1444 Broadway to meet representatives from MISSSEY and learn how you can get involved with their work in Oakland.
