Walk for Justice

It is surprising to many people to hear that human trafficking is happening right here in America. From tomato fields to domestic servants to children being sold for sex at truck stops, it is rampant. Occasionally we may hear a horrific story about modern day slavery that breaks our hearts, but we are left wondering what in the world can we do about it. 

If you live in the Bay Area, you can be apart this Saturday of a "Walk for Justice" in support of the CASE Act. The CASE Act, a.k.a. Prop 35, is an initiative that will be voted on this November which will toughen up the laws about human trafficking in California. This walk is an effort to raise money and awareness so that millions of Californians will vote YES on Prop 35 and put an end to modern day slavery.

I would love to have some friends to walk with, so if you're interested, let me know. Also, you can support me by making a donation on my fundraising page. Would you consider giving $10 or more toward this worthy cause? Click here to contribute. Thanks!!!
