Dear Tamara,

In honor of National Child Abuse Prevention Month and Sexual Assault Awareness Month, we raise our voices with the chorus of organizations and individuals across the country calling for the end of sexual violence and exploitation. Here's how you can join us and take meaningful action this April:
  • On Tuesday, Allies was invited to join Senator Cornyn, The McCain Institute, Rights4Girls, the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children, Thorn and Polaris for "Our Children Are Not For Sale" at the Google Fiber space in Austin. Brooke Axtell, Allies' Dir. of Communication & Engagement, was a featured speaker at the event. She shared, "This is not happening at the fringes of society. This is rooted in the core of mainstream America...Until all children are free, I invite you to join me." Watch the recorded live-stream of the event here and join the conversation online to spread the word that there is #nosuchthing as a child prostitute.
  • Today Allies will join the International Justice Mission, Texas First Lady Cecilia Abbott, Representative Senfronia Thompson and many others for a rally at the Capitol to declare April 10th "Texas Ending Modern Slavery Day." I invite you to stand in solidarity with us today at the South Steps from 2-3pm for this symbolic resolution.
  • The second annual Slave-Free City Summit is only 1 week away! Register now to join this unique gathering of thought leaders, survivor leaders, law enforcement, service providers and community members as we discuss how to work together to create lasting solutions to slavery in our cities. Check out our full list of speakers and updated program online here - topics include prevention, survivor leadership, faith-rooted organizing, innovation, racial reconciliation, policy, history and arts just to name a few.
  • Consider making a donation to sustain our work to build slave-free cities -- cities where traffickers can't sexually abuse or exploit the vulnerable and where survivors can truly heal. We won't stop until we reach that goal. Will you join us?
This is an exciting month for Allies, our city and our state. I look forward to seeing you in the weeks ahead. 

For Freedom,

John Nehme
President & CEO
