Westbrook Church hosts benefit to fight local human trafficking issues

March 2, 2014

Typically when the subject of human trafficking comes up, the question is asked "What country?" but surprisingly human trafficking is also a local issue and in fact, trafficking victims have been found in every county in Wisconsin.

On March 14, 2014 at 7PM, Westbrook Church, located at 1100 State Route 83 in Hartland is taking the issue head on with a benefit concert featuring the popular group Sidewalk Prophets.

All proceeds benefit the local organization Exploit No More(www.exploitnomore.org), which is dedicated to eliminating trafficking in Milwaukee area through advocacy, awareness, and long term residential aftercare. The group hopes to have a safe house for minor victims of human trafficking to recover.

Tickets for the event are available at Westbrook Church, Garden of Reading bookstore, and online via iTickets.com (Search for Exploit No More)
