Columbus Gives Back invites you to join us for our first-ever event with the SOAP Project (Save our Adolescents from Prostitution). Their mission deals with anti-trafficking efforts doing SOAP Outreaches around the country (for example passing our information to area hotels in preparation for the Arnold Classic and in Miami for the Super Bowl). Each year they host an event called the Liberators, which honors those for their work in the community.
What: Staffing the photo booth, ring toss, helping direct guests to their tables, possibly with registration
When: Saturday, March 7th from 4:30pm – 6:30pm.
Event Leaders: firstname.lastname@example.org
What to Wear: Business attire
The SOAP Project was founded by author, advocate and survivor, Theresa Flores. On her worst night, after being auctioned off to nearly two dozen men in a dingy, dirty, inner city Detroit motel, Theresa recalled the only item that would have reached out to her, a bar of soap. With that in mind, she created The SOAP Project — Save Our Adolescents from Prostitution — to help reach out to other victims.
The SOAP Project is specifically focused on educating and increasing awareness in the public on the prevalence of human trafficking, in order to restore trafficked survivors and to prevent teens from being victimized by domestic, minor, sex trafficking.
