Hi Becky,

Sorry I didn't get a chance to get back to you sooner. I am planning on attending the meetup, so I can talk about the Free the Slaves Reception. However, I missed the first half, so I will probably be able to talk more on Haiti. If you have any details from the woman who spoke on India, that would be great. Hope all is well.

Best,
Shelley

>A special announcement from Becky, Organizer of DC Fight Trafficking & Modern Slavery Group
>Hey everyone,
>
>Just a reminder that the May Meeting is TONIGHT, Thursday from 7-9pm at the Polaris Project office at 1822 Biltmore St, NW. 
>
>To be discussed:
>
> HAPPY HOUR benefit at Madams Organ, May 31st - start spreading the word!
> Review ACT toolkit and new website
> Recap from Free the Slaves Reception
> Pick a date for "Free to Play" soccer match and eastern market table
> Watch Invisible Children, a documentary about child soldiers in Uganda
>
>Guest Speaker: Kristin Fleshner, who served Ugandan community where Invisible Children was filmed, and now works for the National Coalition of Women's Organizations<br /><br />And check out this great <b> Volunteer Opportunity: Charity Network Inc's Fundraiser
>
>We're nearly at the finish line for our "Art of Freedom" event, whose proceeds will go towards building a shelter for DC's child trafficking victims, and there are only few elements needed to polish the evening.  One of them is volunteers!  This is a great opportunity for young professionals who would like to attend the event, enjoy the Grammy Award-winning music, see the world-class artwork, and watch the live auction with the professional auctioneer...but who cannot afford to purchase tickets. 
> 
>Volunteers will help with various aspects of the night.  Tasks will include set-up, supporting the auctions, helping with check-in and check-out, working at the coat check, seating guests and directing them through the schedule, etc.  You will be required to attending an information/training­ session in the early afternoon of May 19, so the total duration of the commitment is 8 hours from 4:00pm-12:00am, with scheduled breaks. Volunteers should contact me at [address removed].
> 
>Also, please follow up with anyone that you think might want to attend as a normal guest, of course, and have them contact Luda Huntsman ([address removed],[masked])!  This last push is crucial!
>
>See you tonight,
