Annual Walk/Run to benefit the Angels of Mercy’s Human Trafficking and Domestic Violence-prevention and healing programs! WHY:
Join us again for our annual 5k/1mile fun run/walk! We adapted our fundraiser for the safety and needs of our community last year and it was a great success. We have decided until further notice this is the way to best run our event…. virtual!
Chicken Barbecue to support the Angels of Mercy’s human trafficking and domestic violence prevention and healing efforts! About this event:
All are welcome to the Angels of Mercy’s Chicken Barbecue! Please help us help women move forward by supporting Angels of Mercy’s efforts to prevent human trafficking and domestic violence and help heal those who have been impacted by human trafficking and domestic violence. Angels of Mercy was born out of personal life events involving domestic violence and human trafficking. While we serve women who have experienced homelessness, substance use and mental health disorders, chronic disease, unemployment, justice-involvement, and other forms of life-altering events, we recognize that these issues are connected to human trafficking and domestic violence in one way or another.
With the start of the new year, the commonwealth is working to roll out a law aimed at protecting sexually exploited children. Act 130, known as the Safe Harbor law, ensures child victims of human trafficking won’t be prosecuted for prostitution or other crimes.
