Human trafficking is something that we may think only happens in other parts of the world, but the reality is that it is quite prevalent in our local community. Sadly, children and teenagers are targeted. It is a sickening form of modern day slavery that I feel passionate about combatting. One way to take action is to participate in Race Against Traffick, an event that raises awareness of this issue and fundraises for Araminta Freedom Initiative. Their mission is to awaken, equip, and mobilize the Church and community in Maryland to end human trafficking through education, prevention strategies, and restorative survivor services. I have participated in professional development with Araminta and partner with their organization through my church.
The event is barely one month away! Please join me at the 5K race on May 11, 2019 and/or donate towards my fundraising goal. Every gift makes a difference! See me if you have questions or would like to know more. Thank you for helping me bring more hope and freedom to children in Maryland.
