This week The White Umbrella Campaign partnering with multiple organizations across three different cities in Texas: Austin, Dallas, and Tyler, to end human trafficking. Yesterday, more than 80 people, including government workers, church leaders, educators, medical professionals, and community leaders, gathered in Austin for a Community Round Table event, discussing the nature of human trafficking and how to end it in Texas. Restore a Voice and Allies Against Slavery partnered with us to create a wonderful, educational event.
Tonight, we have the honor of co-hosting The White Umbrella Night of Worship at Watermark Church! Christian artists Shane and Shane will be performing at the Night of Worship. Wednesday The White Umbrella Campaign will be partnering with TraffickStop in Dallas to host the Community Round Table. Thursday we head to Tyler, Texas, to partner with Refuge of Light, an organization that has been part of Wellspring Living’s Organizational Mentorship Program for two years! We will co-host a Community Round Table with Refuge of Light, and then host another Night of Worship where our good friend Kevin Rowe will perform.
What an exciting week to be had in Texas! Make sure to follow The White Umbrella Campaign on Twitter to keep up with the trip throughout the week: @awhiteumbrella
