Trafficked: The Experience – Planning Meeting Aug. 15
Free the Captives is hosting an event, “Trafficked: The Experience,” that helps audiences to understand the realities of trafficking, and we need volunteers to help with this experiential event. The goal is to create a series of rooms that the audience walks through in order to experience the life of a trafficking victim.
We need your help to make this possible. We need writers, set design people, AV/tech people, PR people, event planners, graphic designers, actors/actresses, handymen/builders, and anyone else who is willing to work hard. Please invite your friends.
**We are collecting skeins of yarn for trafficking victims at this meeting. The girls enjoy crocheting and find it therapeutic. We are also selling crocheted blankets that they make. If possible, please bring multiple skeins of the same color. Your donation helps provide them with income.**
Please RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org if you are planning to attend.
