Freedom Walk and Freedom Fair commemorate National Human Trafficking Awareness Day

Los Angeles – the Coalition to abolish Slavery and Trafficking (CAST) in partnership with LA Metro Taskforce on Human Trafficking and other nonprofit community organizations will commemorate this year’s National Human Trafficking Awareness Day with FREEDOM WALK and FREEDOM Fair.  These two annual activities bring together the Los Angeles community to send a clear message that slavery and trafficking need to be stamped out.

Angelica Salas, executive director for the Coalition for Humane Immigrant Rights of Los Angeles (CHIRLA) stated:  “The evil that represents slavery and human trafficking has not dissipated, especially in urban centers where silent victims are threatened into submission and anonymity is guaranteed.  As a community we must ensure that anyone who needs help comes out from the shadows and those guilty of the basest of crimes punished.  CHIRLA is honored to partner with CAST in this worthy project and we look forward to walking with other Angelenos on Saturday”.

WHAT:           Freedom Walk and Freedom Fair, two annual events to commemorate National Human Trafficking Awareness Day.

WHEN:           Saturday, January 7, 2012, starting at 9:30 a.m.

WHERE:         Millenium Biltmore Hotel, Heinbergen Room, 506 S. Grand Ave., LA, 90017
