The walk is an annual event organized by the community to raise awareness and funds for the fight against human trafficking. It includes a walk, speakers, information fair, art exhibit, and music concert. This event is an opportunity for the entire DC Area anti-human-trafficking community to get together with elected officials, artists, luminaries, businesses, professional athletes, and the community to celebrate the cause and galvanize the movement. All money raised will go towards raising awareness about and combating human trafficking in the DC Area.
