 Domestic Violence and Sex Trafficking

Hotline Poster Campaign! 

GOAL #1: Post Domestic Violence and Sex Trafficking (DVAST) Hotline Posters in Every Healthcare and Abortion Facility in NY. 

Healthcare providers are "one of the few professionals likely to interact" with victims of domestic violence and sex trafficking (DVAST), women who experience an increased risk of coerced abortions. Survivors of DVAST make up a sizable percentage of abortion clinic clients.

Hotlines help release women from DVAST. 


We need you! We are excitedly building 6 new teams, led by courageous FCLNY supporters across NYS to help us reach our DVAST Hotline Poster goal, and end cycles of violence. 


Please reach out to join a team and help us distribute these vital hotlines. You can also download the posters here.

Goal #2: Help draft and enact NY policies that require all public healthcare and abortion facilities to post DVAST hotline posters.

NY does not require ANY entity to post the DV hotline. NY requires only a limited category of 'healthcare providers' to post the Trafficking Hotline. Many abortion clinics are either not required to post the Trafficking Hotline or fail to, though required by law to do so.

The Monarca Project

The MONARCA PROJECT is a monthly peer support group for women impacted by trauma, including

domestic and community violence, abortion, and sexual abuse.  


Monarca aims to educate on various forms and impacts of violent trauma on women,  and to offer women tools and resources to help facilitate their recovery. The peer support group’s purpose is to foster healing and empowerment—

to help break cycles of violence.


“Violence against women… is a major public health problem and a violation of .. human rights.”


The Monarca Project is not a therapy group.  The facilitators are not counselors. They are women who have themselves experienced and recovered from trauma, and are most interested in creating a comfortable atmosphere where healing may occur.  Monarca is a pilot project, launched in WNY. Our hope is for replication of this collaborative project in cities across NY.
