You are invited to the Gems Uncovered “Love to Life” Gala Dinner on October 29th, 2016!
The evening will showcase what Gems Uncovered is doing to provide support and healing to victims of human trafficking. Not only will you experience hope through stories shared by some of the women who have graduated from our Diversion Program, but you will understand what it means to continue to bring awareness and financial support to fight this horrible crime against humanity.
Gems Uncovered has pioneered many frontiers over the last five years, starting in 2011 with the mission to bring hope to the women prostituting on the streets of Long Beach. In 2012 we were blessed to open a Drop In Center – the only one in Long Beach – to welcome girls to a safe place where they are listened too, loved on, and offered help through available services. Today, we have a successful Diversion Program called “Free 2 B Me” as well as Street Outreach Teams in Long Beach and Los Angeles.
Tickets are at a cost of $75 each. This includes a delicious meal, dessert, fair trade coffee, access to a silent auction, and a night of inspiring hope.
Place: 7th Street Church | 668 N. Obispo Ave., Long Beach, CA 90814
Time: 6PM- 9PM

We invite you to JOIN US for our 3rd annual Walk For Freedom! On October 15, we will fight together as a global community to illuminate the darkness of human trafficking, and raise funds to rescue and restore more lives than ever before. In over 250 locations around the world, we will lace up our shoes, put black tape on our mouths, and march in single-file to eradicate modern-day slavery for GOOD!
Why do we walk? We walk for children like Nina*, who was only 7 years old when she was sold into prostitution by her parents in Thailand. This year, your decision to fundraise in your local community has the power to save the lives of human trafficking victims all over the world.
We believe that together, we can abolish modern-day slavery!
Join us as we work to bring FREEDOM to men, women, and children on every continent!

HUMAN TRAFFICKING Awareness Training
there’s more than one way to save a life
Yuba College Theatre
Tuesday, October 18th
FREE ADMISSION and parking
Human trafficking happens in most countries in the world today, including in the United States and right here in Yuba-Sutter. It is the world’s fastest growing criminal industry estimated at $32 billion dollars per year, second only to drug trafficking. Understanding how humans can be bought and sold for another person’s profit is simple: it is basic supply and demand and a trafficker’s ability to prey on people who are vulnerable.
Learn more about Human Trafficking in the Yuba-Sutter area listening to experts in law enforcement and accounts from Trafficking Victims at this noon time seminar.
Call (530) 741-6829 or visit here for more information.
