Clayton Kershaw's mission to help victims of human trafficking in the Dominican Republic

 

Los Angeles Dodgers ace pitcher Clayton Kershaw and his wife, Ellen, visited the Dominican Republic during the MLB offseason to help fight the battle against human trafficking.

Mike Stocker for ESPN wrote about the Kershaws' visit.  When Kershaw and Ellen learned of the rampant child trafficking in the Dominican Republic, they looked for ways to help.  The Kershaws  traveled to Santo Domingo to meet with officials from the International Justice Mission (IJM), a faith-based organization that fights slavery and sex trafficking, particularly child exploitation. The group had an audience with Dominican Republic president Danilo Medina, visited the city's red-light district with investigators and spent an afternoon playing baseball with survivors of sex trafficking.
