Description

You're invited to FAIR Girl's Rosé on the Rooftop event, an evening of wonderful cocktails, cabanas, conversation, food, and live music to celebrate our 12 year journey of serving survivors of human trafficking!

Come enjoy a beautiful September evening memorializing our story while overlooking Washington D.C. from the Penthouse Pool Club roof deck. The event will be a great opportunity to network, engage in meaningful conversations about ending exploitation, and celebrating remarkable goals achieved by remarkable women.


About FAIR Girls:

In the beginning, we concentrated on educating vulnerable young women and providing support for survivors through case management and creative art therapy like jewelry making. As we struggled to find safe places for young women survivors, we realized our next big step was establishing the Vida Home, where up to 50 young women survivors a year live and receive long term counseling and case management. When a young survivor is ready, FAIR Girls works tirelessly to assist her in finding transitional housing where she can thrive in her community and build a network of support. Three years ago, FAIR Girls launched a 12 week job readiness program teaching survivors key skills in budgeting, resume building, professional networking, and healthy lifestyles. However, more needs to be done!

Moving forward, we are seeing time and time again that survivors are taking their hard earned GED diploma and their polished resumes and heading out to find jobs, only to be met with prospects that are minimum wage and seldom offer additional benefits. They can barely afford public transportation and often find it difficult to maintain employment while they struggle to make ends meet and still heal daily from trafficking. We have seen young women who have come so far become discouraged and vulnerable to trafficking again. On September 27th, as we celebrate all FAIR Girls and the survivors we serve have accomplished so far, we will also be providing our guests a sneak preview of the final piece of our story: the upcoming launch of a new social enterprise, a fitness café and loung, that will provide employment opportunities for our survivors that truly speak to their talents and skills. Our vision for each survivor is that her resume will be as strong as he heart and mind. She will be truly free from her past and able to thrive in the future she chooses for herself.
