Though it wasn’t an office happening per se, the whole staff went out to the South of the City event last Saturday to enjoy a night of music and fun. Thanks to Andrew Yontz, ESTN raised $970 and was able to create a great amount of awareness at the event. Thanks again to Andrew and all the bands, artists, and helpers at the event for such a great success!
Derri and Karen were interviewed by Steve Hall for a documentary for You Have the Power.
Derri, Kamrie, and Laura met with board members to discuss the options and beginning details for the fall benefit event for End Slavery Tennessee.
Kamrie and Allie had two youth presentations this week and did a great job educating the students and encouraging them all to take action in their communities while hosting a door hanger campaign. The two also organized Red Flag Week on our BeTheJam Facebook page to encourage youth to be aware of the signs of traffickers and trafficked victims.
Karen had two presentations this week with the Lantana Road Baptist Church in Crossville and the Child Advocacy Center in Ashland City.
The office was visited by Murfreesboro group leader Dana Montgomery who delivered some survivor rescue bags and food kits that were put together by a generous and thoughtful family.
And as always our super-hero team of three (Christine, Lizedny, and Shelia) was in and out throughout the week working with survivors and visiting some new referrals – one of which is a minor.
Sadly, Thursday was the last day as our summer intern for Allie – but we know she will inspire others wherever she goes and hope to see her again in the future!
