For Dignity is a non-profit 501C3 located in New Jersey that is actively advancing the safety of local communities by exposing sexual exploitation and promoting healing in victims and survivors.
In July 2011, Kelly Master invited a handful of women for breakfast to talk about the issue of human sex trafficking and launched a monthly breakfast meeting named “Dining for Dignity.” The goal was to raise awareness and provoke others to take action. The dark and painful reality that human trafficking was happening in our communities drew attention, and a strong momentum began. For Dignity flooded social media, established partnerships with community leaders and kept the important subject of human trafficking before everyone’s eyes. For Dignity quickly became known as a strong voice against social injustice and a committed advocate for human trafficking victims and survivors. In 2016 the name was legally changed from Dining for Dignity to For Dignity, but the commitment remained steadfast. For Dignity continues to have a strong reputation and is regularly invited to lead assemblies, seminars, and conferences throughout the country.
Mission: For Dignity is committed to strengthening our communities against sexual exploitation and empowering victims with hope and dignity.
Vision: For Dignity’s vision is that communities will be empowered to prevent, identify, and heal victims of sexual exploitation.
