Human trafficking involves the commercial exchange and exploitation of humans including forced prostitution and pornography, involuntary labor, servitude and debt bondage. A growing problem worldwide, human trafficking has become the second most common criminal activity behind the illegal drug trade. Florida has been identified as a hub for human trafficking activity, the third highest in the country. This crime affects all types of individuals, both foreign and domestic. No More Tears provides immediate assistance to victims of human trafficking in West Palm Beach, Broward and Miami Dade Counties.
Domestic violence is the willful intimidation, physical assault, battery, sexual assault, and/or other abusive behavior as part of a systematic pattern of power and control perpetrated by one intimate partner against another. It includes physical violence, sexual violence, psychological violence, and emotional abuse. The frequency and severity of domestic violence can vary dramatically; however, the one constant component of domestic violence is one partner’s consistent efforts to maintain power and control over the other.
Domestic violence is an epidemic affecting individuals in every community, regardless of age, economic status, sexual orientation, gender, race, religion, or nationality. It is often accompanied by emotionally abusive and controlling behavior that is only a fraction of a systematic pattern of dominance and control. Domestic violence can result in physical injury, psychological trauma, and in severe cases, death. The devastating physical, emotional, and psychological consequences of domestic violence can cross generations and last a lifetime. No More Tears provides immediate assistance to victims of domestic violence in South Florida.
No More Tears envisions a world free of discrimination based on sexual orientation and gender identity. This means a world where LGBT people can live openly, where our identities, relationships, and families are respected, and where there is fair treatment on the job, in schools, housing, public places, health care, and government programs.
