Celebrities Join Plight Against Sex Trafficking
Q Parker, Meelah Williams and DJ Fadelf Join Plight Against Sex Trafficking in Atlanta
The family event will consist of a 5K walk, self defense classes, a panel of experts including local law enforcement and families of missing persons along with performances by national and local entertainers. This event is being held to bring awareness to the hundreds of thousands of persons of color who are missing – across the nation and specifically address the epidemic in Atlanta and surrounding areas.
"I am excited to partner with these individuals and commend them for using their platforms. Personally, I am outraged that our children - black and brown children - can go missing in this country and be treated as an afterthought. Where is the outcry for these children? We have to be the voice for the voiceless and fight to bring our children home! I support these efforts as a mother, daughter, wife and sister and plead with you to care enough to support and do something now before this hits close to your home."
She continues, "It is a pleasure to welcome both Meelah Williams and Q Parker to be part of this inaugural event."
Q Parker, a father and husband shares, "Our children are the future, I am committed to making sure our girls are able to live prosperous and fulfilling lives."
Williams, who is a mother shares her sentiments about participating, "A child's innocense belongs to them. It's up to us to make sure they keep it, even if it's one child at a time."
The event is a fundraiser for Our Children's Keeper, an organization who's mission is to protect and rescue children from sex trafficking by raising awareness, promoting personal safety and providing relief to families of victims.
