Allies Against Slavery is proud to promote Children At Risk's 8th annual Texas Human Trafficking Summit. For those of you who are able, we encourage you to attend.
What would happen if the cities of the future were deeply and comprehensively committed to freedom? What if they were places of refuge, where traffickers couldn’t operate and where survivors of slavery could access all they need to truly heal? The Summit is the place where a growing tribe of individuals and organizations convene each year to explore questions like these.
