Most everyone will agree that we love our San Diego. But in speaking of our community, there must come the acknowledgement that there is a terrible phenomenon taking place both here and across the country. It’s a phenomenon that many are completely unaware of. Even more disturbing is that there are those who are very much aware of it, are profiting from it and/or are indulging in it. The worst part of all of this is that little girls, little boys, women and men are being enslaved and brutalized by it EVERY DAY. Through force, fraud and/or coercion…these human beings are victims of the crime known as HUMAN TRAFFICKING, and San Diego is one of the top 7 cities in America where this is happening.
There is a need to bring the topic of human trafficking down to street level, so that more people are aware of this critical issue facing our society today and that is taking place in our own back yards. In order to help eliminate this tragic injustice, there is a need to change the way the public thinks about this issue as well as a need to empower them with the education and resources in order to become an ally in this mission. With these things in mind, we are very excited to announce that the Survivor Leader Network of San Diego is moving forward with our 2nd Annual “Freedom NOW Fair” on January 28rd, 2017…WE HAVE MORE WORK TO DO!!!

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
