There are two upcoming opportunities for the Church in DC to take action now in the fight against human trafficking:
1) Bittersweet Benefit; Friday, October 12th at 7:30pm
This is an event to raise money for four organizations doing amazing work to fight human trafficking: Courtney's House, Restoration Ministries, Polaris Project, and Fair Girls. More details forthcoming, If you're interested, email me!
2) Stop Modern Slavery Walk; September 29th at noon, starting in front of the Washington Monument
This walk is a chance to march together with thousands of others against the atrocity of human trafficking, and a way to physically stand in support of the organizations that are committed to a slavery-free future. Restoration Ministries, a non-profit my church has partnered with several times for other events, is one of the 15 organizations that benefits from the proceeds of this walk, so please come out and support them! This walk is also great way to get educated on the other anti-slavery initiatives in the DC area. If you'd like to walk, you can go here to register a team. Registration is $25 ($15 for students).
