The DC Stop Modern Slavery Meetup group has invited us to attend the 6th Annual Stop Modern Slavery WalkFest, Saturday, October 4th on the National Mall. Register at http://www.firstgiving.com/sms/walkfest before 9/15 for Early Bird Rates! If you can't make it to the event you can still donate and encourage your friends and family to donate!
This community-powered event will raise awareness and funds in the fight against human trafficking. Event proceeds directly benefit locally based organizations working to end modern slavery. The event will include: luminary speakers, a walk around the Washington Monument, live music, and a resource fair with dozens of anti-trafficking organizations. The previous events have raised more than $375,000 and attracted more than 7,500 community members and walkers. This year's goal is to raise $100,000 for beneficiaries and include 2,000 participants in WalkFest. If you would like to volunteer please send an email to [masked].
