April 14- Women Survivors of Vision: A Taste of Freedom

Join and support us, as we bring awareness to the world’s 2nd largest criminal activity, human trafficking. Human Trafficking is modern day slavery and in 2016 there has been nearly 5,500 cases of human trafficking in California alone. California – a populous border state with a significant immigrant population and the world’s sixth largest economy – is one of the nation’s top four destination states for trafficking human beings. In Southern California we have a stake in making a difference as 72% of all trafficked individuals assisted in California are American citizens.

With the purchase of your benefit ticket, you are helping organizations that support and assist those who have been trafficked right here in Southern California, as well as provide funding for community awareness and education. 

Join us for five BK Cellars’ wines tasting, appetizers, entertainment, silent auctions, and special presentations by Virginia Isaias, President and Founder of “Fundación de Sobrevivientes de Tráfico Humano” and Maria Suarez, Executive Director and Founder of the Maria Suarez Foundation.

February 13- Men Standing Against Trafficking

This month, let’s take back what Valentines Day should represent…lets honor the legacy of President Lincoln and his fight against slavery – let’s stand as MEN and women who have men they love – against the sexual exploitation of girls and boys, men and women – and for the love that God envisioned us to bring into this amazing world we share!

 These STANDS are just the beginning of what we must bring to the fight against human trafficking.

There are women out there who need to know that men are out there taking a stand for them. 
Let’s drop a stone in the waters of what has become normalized treatment of others as objects to satisfy lust and domination – and cause a tsunami sized ripple that topples the sexual exploitation industry! 
Please join us in body or spirit this February 13th – between Lincoln’s Birthday and Valentine’s day to say no to slavery and YES to what love should be.
