forDignity is a 501C-3 non-profit organization located in New Jersey that is actively promoting hope and healing for ladies working in the adult industry.
History: In July 2011, Director Kelly Master initiated a monthly breakfast meeting named Dining for Dignity to speak about issues of global and domestic sex trafficking and sexual exploitation. The goal was to raise awareness, provoke action and create change. The dark and painful reality that human trafficking was happening in our communities drew attention, and a strong momentum began. Dining for Dignity flooded social media, established strategic partnerships with community leaders and kept the vital subject of human trafficking before everyone’s eyes. Kelly and her team were quickly known as a passionate voice against social injustice.
On Mother’s Day, 2012 Master launched Emerge, a unique ministry and support group for ladies working in the adult sex industry. Understanding the complex issues many women in the sex industry face, Emerge wanted to inspire, extend dignity and offer hope and healing. For more info on Emerge, click here Emerge Ladies
In 2016 the name was legally changed to forDignity, but the commitment remained steadfast.
In 2018, the organization shifted vision to fully focus on offering hope and healing to women working in the adult industry. forDignity actively partners with community leaders, NGO directors, and professionals to provide access to mental health counseling, addiction recovery, continuing education, career counseling and safe homes for women in need.
