#GivingTuesday Donations Being Matched
The Reasons & Season of Giving
NEW YORK, November 27, 2018 (Newswire.com) - On this #GivingTuesday, The Selah Way Foundation has announced that Northern Trust will proudly sponsor the anti-sex trafficking organization during Super Bowl LIII in Atlanta. The powerhouse wealth management firm will host an intimate Meet & Greet on Friday, February 1, 2019, with Elizabeth Melendez Fisher, CEO of Selah Freedom who will be joined by the Selah Way Ambassadors; NFL Legend Tony Richardson, NBA World Champion Trent Tucker, WNBA Champion & Gold Medalist Asjha Jones and Singer/Actor DeeMo as well as some of the biggest names in the NFL and the sports & entertainment businesses. This invite-only gathering will be for high-net-worth individuals who are looking to support an organization that is saving lives. “I have immense gratitude for Northern Trust for their generosity and support of our work,” said Fisher. “Selah Freedom provides services and saves the lives of our own American children. 1 out of 3 girls and 1 out of 5 boys are being sexually abused within 48 hours of running away from home. 80% are approached to be coerced into sex trafficking and then sold 15 to 40 times a day. We will continue to work diligently with law enforcement and bring as many victims as we can into Selah Freedom’s safe homes.”
Fisher has been proactively in the news spreading the word on Selah Freedom’s programs and was recently featured on WGNTV in a two-part docu-series. https://wgntv.com/2018/11/15/woman-sold-for-sex-at-13-shares-her-story-of-survival

About Selah Freedom
Selah Freedom is a national organization with the mission to end sex trafficking and bring freedom to the exploited through four strong programs: Awareness, Prevention, Outreach, and Residential. Selah Freedom actively confronts the issue of sex trafficking and is being upheld as the model for how to effectively bring solutions to survivors of sex trafficking and exploitation. Selah is a Hebrew word which means to pause, rest, and reflect. They give survivors a chance to do just that. To dream again, to discover who it is they were created to be.
About the Selah Way Foundation
The Selah Way Foundation has three initiatives: Prevention, which works to prevent youth from being exploited by providing training to children, teens, parents and those working with youth; Protection, which trains first responders on how to recognize and address sex trafficking; and the largest initiative, Provision, providing survivors of sex trafficking and exploitation with safe housing and restorative services. Selah Freedom has hubs providing safe housing around the country, which will be highlighted during the Immersion Tour.
