Concert to End Domestic Minor Sex Trafficking

New Year's Eve 2012 Concert:
National 13A Campaign Legacy of Freedom Concert Tour

Resolution Hope is holding a New Year's concert dedicated to raising awareness and advocating for the end to child sex trafficking in the United States. "13A" refers to the Thirteenth Ammendment to the Constitution that outlaws slavery in this country. Few Americans know that slavery continues to be a widespread problem. Young women and children between the ages of 12 - 18 remain the most vulnerable to falling victim to this terrible crime activity. The year 2013 marks the 150th anniversary to the Emancipation Proclamation.

The 13A National Awareness Campaign is taking political action by requesting 1 million electronic signatures to ask the United States government to take action against child sex trafficking in this country. This concert is the first of the LEGACY OF FREEDOM concert educational tour this spring. Singer/Songwriter Anthony Mossburg will be featured on the this concert series as he advocates for this cause.

Concert details are as follows:
8:00PM at STAGE AE

"An exciting evening filled with inspiration, purpose, amazing food and fellowship to help those who cannot help themselves."
