Traffick Free Pomona at CASE Act Walk for Justice
Members of Traffick Free Pomona joined people from all over Southern California to support the CASE Act at the Walk for Justice in Long Beach on September 15. Seven members of TFP attended the event and four of them participated in the walk raising about $200 for the CASE Act.
In addition to the walk there was a full schedule of speakers and performers throughout the day. Some of the speakers were advocates like Daphne Phung, founder of California Against Slavery and Chris Kelly for Prop 35. There were also survivors sharing their stories. Amy Andrews shared how she was trafficked at a young age into the sex industry and Carissa Phelps, a survivor who is now an attorney and advocate shared her story which she recently published in her autobiography.
TFP members where able to share about our work as people stopped by our table. Many many were inspired to start something similar in their communities or to begin raising awareness about human trafficking in their faith communities.
