New York, NY: FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
October 19,2013 is a big day for The Collective Advocates for Social Change and Development, Inc. This non profit social advocacy organization is hosting their first annual fundraiser and they are focused on bringing about awareness on human trafficking. Tickets are on sale now and may also be purchased at the door. The event will take place at the Brooklyn Music School & Playhouse located at 126 St Felix St- Brooklyn, NY 11217 between 3-5 pm.
TCASCD chooses a campaign each year and the advocates involved work relentlessly to bring about awareness on the topic at hand. Human trafficking is often viewed as an international issue, however there are rings of human trafficking in large numbers all across the United States. In fact, 300,000+ people in the U.S. alone are trafficked for sex and labor. Those numbers continue to rise.
This monologue slam will help to artfully tell the tales of those victims and paint a picture of those most at risk and bring enlightenment to the industries heavily involved in this criminal act in an entertaining and moving manner.
There will be winners of the monologue and prizes awarded as well as an opportunity to network with participants, sponsors and board members of TCASCD. Light appetizers and cocktails will be provided as well. Asha Tarry, Founder and President says of the fundraiser: "We're all really excited and focused on heavily promoting the event at the moment. We want people to come out, take pictures, ask questions, network- let's talk about it. The problem is that people aren't talking about human trafficking and they really need to be."
Qiana Williams of Writings of the Goddess is the publicist for The Collective Advocates for Social Change and Development, Inc. as well as the co-producer for this event.
