Free the Bird Poetry Night
January 6th, 5:30-7:30
January is Human Trafficking Awareness Month. We will be remembering and keeping these women, children and young men in our thoughts and prayers, not just in January but everyday that they are captive. “Free the Bird Poetry Night” will be dedicating the evening to victims of Human Trafficking…through written word and song. A moment of silence and prayer during the evening will take place. Candles will illuminate the evening representing victims of Human Trafficking.
