With our recent expansion, comes the challenge of procuring additional funding for our presentations and operations. As the Events and Communications Coordinator, I am tasked with the exciting challenge of implementing events that will not only help generate funding to continue our mission, but also raise and spread awareness of the need for trafficking prevention education.
On January 16, our staff travelled to Des Moines, Iowa to witness the historic proclamation by Governor Kim Reynolds that January will forever be known as Human Trafficking Awareness and Prevention Month. It was a great day to see many people across the state of Iowa stand together in the commitment to fight human trafficking.
We’re very excited for our Open House event on February 7, 2020.
This will be a great opportunity to open our doors to the community and give you a behind the scenes look at how we are combating trafficking one presentation at a time.
This event is for friends, supporters, and friendly new faces that are eager to see our impact to their community. There will be educator-led activities, video testimonials, and a staff meet-and-greet. We hope you’ll join us so that we can get to know you better too!
Looking forward to the coming year, our focus is now on our biggest night of the year: Comedy for Change. With a stand-up performance by Jeff Allen, dinner and drinks, and live and silent auctions, months of hard work and preparation go into what will certainly be the most hilarious night in Omaha. We are excited to extend a special invitation to you and encourage you to mark your calendars for March 26th for a night you will never forget!
