Sorry that the month of April was such a blur. There were a few opportunities to meet with individuals concerned about human trafficking, I also met with a number of college and high school students who were eager and excited to know more and do “something” to combat human trafficking in their schools and community.
There was a two day summit in Altoona, Iowa attended by more than 600 people to discuss what is true and current in human trafficking. One of the many best things about this time were the opportunities to listen to the survivors stories so that we will be better able to assist survivors as they come along. Another blessing was to come together with other abolitionists who are fighting the good fight.
Last week the film, “Invisible Hands” played at the Julien Dubuque International Film Festival. It is an excellent film about global child labor trafficking. Take the time to see this film if it plays near you. The filmmaker, Shraysi Tandon, is lovely and had really excellent information about this topic.

On morning of May 5, the University of Dubuque’s Spartan Nation Liberation Foundation will be holding a color run/walk to promote human trafficking awareness. Please attend and support these efforts, if you can.
