Community Spotlight

Free to Thrive

Klinedinst is honored to shine a spotlight on the organizations making a difference in our community. One of those organizations that we are proud to feature is the non-profit organization, Free to Thrive.

The Free to Thrive organization is one of the leading nonprofits in California helping human trafficking survivors and includes a diverse group of people involved in the anti-trafficking movement. They seek to safeguard the constitutional rights of victims exposed to human trafficking. By effectively utilizing legal access to reclaim the victim’s legal rights, they are able to combat the problem and help people.

To empower survivors of human trafficking, Free to Thrive is guided by four core values: client-first, trauma-informed, holistic, and advocacy for justice. The organization advocates for human trafficking survivors by redefining survivors as victims of crime rather than criminals in the criminal justice and family law systems. The main objective of Free to Thrive is to provide survivors with access to justice and help those whose lives have been severely impacted by human trafficking rebuild their lives.

Klinedinst has been a long-time supporter of Free to Thrive and the founder, Jamie Beck, and is pleased to have sponsored their movie premier and fundraiser event on September 23, 2021. They have made a remarkable difference in the lives of human trafficking victims and continue to shine a light in the community.

Free to Thrive empowers survivors of human trafficking to be free from exploitation and to thrive by providing them with holistic and trauma-informed, legal and support services in collaboration with our service partners, and by increasing access to justice for all survivors.
