October 18, 2013 marks the first event to abolish exploitation and modern day slavery

WASHINGTON, D.C. (September 10, 2013) – Local anti-trafficking groups join with Morality in Media to put on the first annual Freedom Night: Abolishing Exploitation and Modern Day Slavery on October 18, 2013 at Railroad Park. More information can be found at www.freedomnightbirmingham.com. MIM and locals put up a billboard on I-20 in March 2013 asking “How Much For Your Daughter?” to raise awareness about the harms of pornography and sexual exploitation.

Local non-profits, to include The Wellhouse, She Dances, Freeset USA, and Makeway Partners, joined with MIM to fund more billboards across the country to bring awareness to human trafficking. Freedom Night will serve to educate the Birmingham community on the issue of human trafficking, not just across the world, but within the community. This ticketed event will raise money to implement more billboards across Alabama and the U.S., along with funding the non-profits represented at the event.

The main event is at Railroad Park in Birmingham, AL. It will consist of a benefit concert, dance performances, a silent auction, and interactive activities. Booths from additional organizations will include She’s Somebody’s Daughter, Wellspring Christian Clinic, and Birmingham Prayer Furnace.

Patrick Trueman, President of Morality in Media, will speak at the event on the harms of pornography to include increased demand for sexual trafficking. Further details will be announced in the coming weeks.
