Abuse Prevention Organization to Host Event at July’s Action On Film Festival in Pasadena
Neglected Bloodlines, an organization that bridges the gap between at-risk communities and public and private institutions, will host its first benefit event – “An Evening of Awareness” – on July 27th at Pasadena’s Action On Film Festival
Neglected Bloodlines is dedicated to providing resources to at-risk youth and adults in local communities. By providing necessities such as clothing, shelter, food, and counseling, the organization seeks to restore and bring back hope to the lives of men, women, and children suffering from various abuses. Timothy Littlefield, founder of Neglected Bloodlines, will host “An Evening of Awareness” to shed light on these victims and show attendees how they can help their local communities.
AOF Festival founder, Del Weston, says, “Tim Littlefield has proven without a shadow of a doubt that one voice in the darkness can make a difference in not just one life, but millions of lives. His work today will have a ripple effect that changes for the better so many lives, that I myself couldn’t help to be more proud of him and his organization.”
During the July 27th event, Neglected Bloodlines will premiere four short films that highlight the devastating effects of physical and sexual abuse on its victims. By recognizing abuse as a destructive and growing epidemic, Timothy Littlefield will stand along these filmmakers in place of the thousands of victims of abuse who cannot or do not have the courage to stand up for themselves.
Timothy Littlefield says, “I’m ecstatic to be a part of this year’s AOF Festival. Not only is it important to help these youths and adults, but it is just as important to spread awareness and to show the community how we can help where other social and economic institutions have fallen short.”
Neglected Bloodlines’ “An Evening of Awareness” will take place July 27th at 7:00pm at the Regency Academy Theater in Pasadena, California. All donations will go toward the Neglected Bloodlines Foundation, dedicated to helping at-risk youth and adults in the local community.
