Hey Shelley,

Hope you had a great week! Are you planning on coming to the Happy Hour this Thursday? It should be great!

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.

>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,
>Elizabeth and Becky
