Powerful Connections

Powerful connections are those connections that can cause transformation. We at Set Free are blessed to have connections that are transforming the lives of trafficking victims and survivors in our community. Below are just a few examples.

We are so grateful for the Julien Dubuque International Film Festival and the sustained commitment the festival has to films that create awareness. Each year, during the film festival held in late April, we get the opportunity to answer questions and address local concerns about trafficking. Throughout the rest of the year, we will hear from people who saw a film and they share how a film’s message has stayed in their minds.

Tonight we were contacted by a festival attendee/volunteer because he had heard about disconcerting behavior in the Dubuque area. After talking for a bit, he shared the number of a local pastor who had witnessed predatory behavior and needed assistance in knowing what to do next.
