What is a Stories Sidekick?
The best heroes are teams. What is Batman without Robin or Alfred? Superman without Lois Lane? The same can be said of Stories Foundation. We are limited alone, but with our Sidekicks we are unstoppable. A Stories Sidekick is someone who is on the inside. Stories Sidekicks are the foundation beneath the feet of the organization. We can only do so much alone, we know there is much work to be done and we need a team of Sidekicks to move forward.
Who Can Be a Stories Sidekick?
Are you drawn to the fight against human trafficking but you aren't sure how to help? Do you want to tangibly affect the root causes of human trafficking and sexual violence locally? Is spreading awareness and trafficking prevention something you are passionate about? Is helping something you want to do but you aren't sure what organizations to join? Would you like to see those at risk of being trafficked and those surviving trafficking have more opportunities for job training and housing? Have you been wondering what your part is in the fight against human trafficking? If you answer "yes" to any or all of these questions then you can, and should, be a Stories Sidekick. We are partnering with organizations to resource the rescue and recovery of human trafficking victims through sexual violence and human trafficking awareness education, awareness and micro grants through our Freedom Truck and advocacy through our direct service partner organizations.
Why Are Stories Sidekicks Important?
Every Sidekick that joins our team makes it possible for us to do more to change the human trafficking story in Minnesota. Our reach becomes farther through education and the Freedom Truck. Money goes out to organizations fighting human trafficking through micro grants and we are made able to strengthen our partnerships with organizations working in direct services through job training and housing. We cannot do this without support, Sidekicks are vital to the work that has to be done.
