Our February Awareness Gathering was another success, a good mixture of filmmakers, actors, philanthropists, and organizations fighting child trafficking.

Guests were treated to amazing singing performances from singer/actress Diana Salvatore accompanied by Tony Romero on the keyboard and Tomas Ramirez Altamirano on guitar. Lily Piette made her singing debut and wowed the room too. Film director John Penney provided wine from his fantastic vineyard.

A talk was given on child trafficking and ways to protect your children. Internet safety and building trust with your children so they let you know if they are getting any strange requests or online approaches that seem inappropriate is key.

Board member Patrick Erlandson also filled all in about the upcoming See it. End it. Film, Arts and Music Festival happening Fri 3rd and Sat 4th in April, in San Pedro.

As always we want your feedback, ideas, and volunteers. We also need help with getting silent auction items for our events so if you are able to get a restaurant voucher, jewelry, nice handbags, gift baskets, great experiences, classes, or anything you think would be a good fit - please keep it in mind.

Save the date for our next event: Sunday, March 15th @ 4pm-8pm

Look forward to seeing you all then!

Sex-Trafficking Victim, 15, Takes Her Own Life After Being Rescued: 'We Got Her Back Damaged'

Our hearts for out to Letty Serrano's family for the loss of their 15 year old daughter who committed suicide after being rescued from trafficking. Child trafficking has to be stopped and teenagers educated on techniques traffickers used to manipulate their victims. This story is heartbreaking.

Our August Artists for Change salon hosted by founder Julia Verdin at her home was a great success and through the group discussion came many great ideas and plans for our campaign against child trafficking in conjunction with our upcoming feature film on the topic.

Those attending who gave their support included a variety of top creative talent such as actresses Elizabeth Hurley, Rita Rucker, Seri Deyoung, Selina Lo and Melissa Woods, TV personality Lady Victoria Hervey, actors Mario Corona and David Lipper, Entrepreneur Michael Hogg and his beautiful model wife Hawa Hogg, film directors John Penney, Jonathan Heap, Corinne Jayweera and Elizabeth Blake Thomas and producers Danielle Bisutti.

Our advisory board member John Penney kindly donated wine from his vineyard and snacks were provided by Julia Verdin. These events help raise awareness and stimulate conversation and ideas.

If you are wondering about why the homeless situation has become such a crisis - this article is an interesting read. It's heartbreaking to see human beings having to live on the streets in tents. Love to find filmmakers with passion to create media stories around this. Solutions must be found!

January 11th is National Human Trafficking Awareness Day. Recently, the organization Artists for Change completed filming a powerful narrative feature showing not only how girls get lured into this terrible, illegal practice but how it changes their lives and their families lives. We are currently partnered with Saving Innocence and plan to partner with other like minded Not for Profits to bring awareness and help stop this terrible scourge on our society. Please visit www.artists4change.com or www.lostgirlsfilms.com to learn more! Should you be compelled to get more involved, please DM a member of the Artists for Change team below! Thank you!
