Not Our Daughters Benefit Brunch
April 27 @ 11:00 am - 1:00 pm$25 – $50
Human trafficking continues to be one of the major human right abuses today. According to the National Human Trafficking Hotline, in 2018 California has the most reported human trafficking cases in the United States. The 3rd Human Trafficking in San Francisco Report noted that most individuals recruited in California had their initial trafficking experience in San Francisco or Alameda County. Human trafficking is not a victimless crime.
The Baptist Ministers Union of Oakland Women’s Ministry recognizes that it takes a village to eradicate this abuse of human dignity and well-being. On Saturday, April 27, 2019 at 11:00 a.m. the BMU Women’s Ministry will host “Not our Daughter” Brunch. We are taking a stand against human trafficking while reclaiming, revitalizing and restoring our sisters. During the brunch there will be a special screening of Surviving International Boulevard. A documentary by filmmaker Sian Gowen which reveals the complex reality of domestic child sex trafficking through the experiences of two local women from Oakland, California. Many other exciting activities are planned for this special event.
Funds from ticket sales will assist several local organizations that are working with survivors of human trafficking. These organizations include ROYLS, INC founded by Virginia Arnold and Jamar Kirton and Serenity House which was founded by the late Johnnia Davis. Both organizations rely on private donations to provide the services available to young women and men.
Tickets: $50 | Link
