What an incredible experience at the Path 2 Freedom Red Gala event. This organization is amazing as they are rescuing and helping so women involved in human trafficking turn their lives around. We enjoyed the event, the entertainment and great food but were most touched by the heartwarming stories of the personal accounts of the women who were victims of human trafficking first hand. Listening to the stories of these women who survived this horrific experience and seeing how they gave their power away at such young ages is truly heartbreaking.
The most disturbing thing is knowing that human trafficking is so prevalent in our society. Florida ranks 3rd in the U.S. in human trafficking cases behind California and Texas. It is a crime that we do not hear about all too often but it is affecting the lives of so many gravely.
I’m truly honored that my husband’s WDG architecture firm is involved in supporting this great cause.
