Exhibit will raise funds for human trafficking victims

For a three-year term, which started in September and runs through summer 2014, Soroptimist International of La Jolla partnered with the Bilateral Safety Corridor Coalition to combat human trafficking in San Diego. (More at www.bsccoalition.org.)

A fundraiser for the coalition will be an art exhibition titled, “Help Us Free The Girls,” sponsored by Soroptimist International and the La Jolla Art Association, Dec. 5-18 at the art association gallery, 8100 Paseo Del Ocaso in La Jolla Shores. A reception for the show will be held from 6-8:30 p.m., Friday Dec. 9.
“Many of San Diego’s finest artists have donated their time and talent to this event,” said Judy Judy Judy, Art Association vice president.

To RSVP, send JJJ an e-mail at judylajollart@yahoo.com or call (858) 456-1996.

Victims of human trafficking are subjected to force, fraud, or coercion, for the purpose of sexual exploitation or forced labor. BSCC delivers comprehensive services to them through a network of partner agencies.
Services range from emergency response, to long-term case management including housing, mental health services, immigration relief, legal advocacy, interpretation and translation services, etc.

Also through this project, BSCC administers a 24-hour hotline and a Trafficking Emergency Response Team to assist victims in immediate need.

Soroptimist International of La Jolla was founded in 1947 and strives to improve the lives of women and girls locally and around the world.
