Support the Fight Against Human Trafficking

Donating to the Missouri Coalition Against Trafficking and Exploitation (MoCATE) is crucial in the fight against human trafficking and exploitation in Missouri. Your contributions support essential services such as survivor support, legal advocacy, and comprehensive rehabilitation programs that help survivors rebuild their lives. MoCATE’s initiatives also focus on preventative measures, including community education and policy advocacy, which aim to dismantle the systemic factors enabling trafficking. By supporting MoCATE, donors become active participants in fostering safer communities and ensuring that victims receive the justice and care they deserve. Your donation can make a significant difference in protecting the vulnerable and eradicating the pervasive issue of human trafficking in Missouri.
