My apologies for such a late update but things have been crazy with the school year wrapping up! With more free time on our hands this chapter is ready to roll. We're starting out our summer with two new big events. The first is an awareness campaign unlike anything we've done before. While attending the Austin Allies Summit the idea was raised that more should be done to reach out to business and restaurants to show them what the signs of human trafficking are. We're currently in the works of designing brochures to be handed out to some businesses in the area.
The second big event is the possibility of a partnership with International Sanctuary. Working through Purpose Jewelry, this organization teaches human trafficking survivors jeweler skills. The jewelry is then sold where 100% of the profits go back to the survivors themselves! More info to come soon on this possible partnership, and possibility of holding a trunk show. If interested in learning more about this organization click the link below!
Thanks and stay tuned for more updates!
Local Austin Allies chapter is having a slave-free city summit in Austin, TX featuring over 16 amazing speakers (including GRAMMY's speaker Brooke Axtell)! This proves to be an amazing learning and networking opportunity for us to learn better how to combat the growing problem of human trafficking. More information can be found at the attached link, hope to see you there!
Hey guys here's a really interesting website, that after answering a few questions, shows you how many slaves really work for you. This just shows how huge of a problem human trafficking is; and how it does affect our daily lives.
