When: Thu., Aug. 29, 7 p.m. 2013
Dance party and dance-a-thon fundraiser by Without Words Movement, a dance company that performs original works to demand attention to the sex trade and inspire hope and action. Admission includes a short performance by Without Words, two mini-dance classes (swing and salsa), one-hour open bar, appetizers, dessert, and coffee. Human trafficking, also called modern slavery, affects nearly every country. It is estimated that there are ~27 million slaves today, half forced to work in the sex industry. The anti-slavery movement is growing but is very under-resourced. Awareness efforts like those of Without Words are critical to inspire future abolitionists.
Price: $50, or dance-a-thon participants get in free as long as they raise at least $50
