Human Trafficking Awareness Day

I'm starting the new year off with my first public event as The Cooking Activist!  On January 11th, to commemorate Human Trafficking Awareness Day, I will be a part of an event here in Northeast Florida.  Here is the official press release created by Robin Rossmanith from Shop To Stop Slavery.  This event will bring several anti-trafficking agencies together for a public event that includes a documentary viewing and panel discussion for the purpose of informing the public about trafficking, what is being done to combat this awful crime, and how we can change the lives of the victims and survivors. Each organization is doing something to battle trafficking and/or to help survivors. These are the organizations that will participate in the event: Shop To Stop Slavery, Made By Survivors/The Emancipation Network, Transitions Global, World Relief Jacksonville, The Cooking Activist(me), and Amnesty International. Here is a link to the facebook event page. If you will be in the area please come to the event! It will be held at Journey Church, located at 5941 Richard Road, Jacksonville, FL 32216 from 7-9pm. Tell all your friends about it!!

Happy New Year!!
