About

HISTORY OF CAPTIVE DAUGHTERS...

Captive Daughters is the first anti-trafficking group established in California. We focus solely on ending the sexual bondage of women and children. The organization was inspired by Sandra Hunnicutt's, the founding director's, stay in Nepal, where she learned firsthand about sex trafficking. Upon returning to the United States in 1995 she began researching trafficking and discovered a fragile network of groups struggling to educate the public on trafficking both here and abroad. In an effort to strengthen that movement, she and a committed group of individuals established Captive Daughters as a non-profit organization in 1997.

WHAT WE DO...

• While recognizing that sex trafficking is a violation of fundamental human rights that profoundly affects the lives and welfare of both females and males, Captive Daughters has chosen to focus its efforts on combating sex trafficking particularly as it affects women and girl children. Our goal is to bring public attention to and call for the elimination of the forced prostitution of women and girl children.

• We seek to encourage national and international attention to sex trafficking by informing the general public about the scope and severity of the problem. To accomplish this, we share information via our website and social networking sites, participate in national and international forums and media outreach, collaborate with sister organizations, and encourage the television, film, publishing and artistic communities to focus on sex trafficking in their work.

  • Often we are asked to intervene in victim situations - please note that the work of Captive Daughters is to educate the public about sex trafficking; we do not work directly with victims.
