Live from the Red Carpet: Blogger Christi Covers the Saving Innocence Dinner and Auction

PI readers, you may remember that I recently attended a gala and event in support of the Shekinah Tribe launch in conjunction with the Saving Innocence project. Well, in the beginning of December, actor Kellan Lutz hosted a dinner and silent auction for Saving Innocence (an organization dedicated to ending human trafficking). The event was filled with amazing speakers, singers and stories of those affected by human trafficking.

Christian singer and author Rebecca St. James attended to raise awareness of the horrific abuses of human trafficking. More than 27 million people are in bondage to this hidden, dark slavery; some light is being shined on this evil, but there is still more work that needs to be done. Saving Innocence is doing just that!

Human trafficking is a violence that robs individuals of their dignity and erodes the health of both victims and communities physically, mentally, and socially. This modern-day slavery is one of the greatest violations of human rights in our world, affecting over 27 million women, men, and children. Saving Innocence seeks to combat this oppression in Los Angeles by helping marginalized populations and catalyzing individual and community transformation. We actively work for change by addressing trafficking through intervention, education, advocacy, and case management (Saving Innocence).

The evening began with a silent auction to raise funds for the organization, and there was a lovely dinner with many other leaders and advocates. It is inspiring how brave Saving Innocence founder Kim Biddle and her staff are as they join forces to tear down this demonic, dark activity going on in the city of Los Angeles.

How can you help? For one, you can share this article and the Saving Innocence website with others. Second, share the song “She Breaks” by Vienne–it’s a beautiful song against human trafficking. Also, most importantly, we need to PRAY for the victims, and for the people who are committing these horrific crimes to be stopped and for justice to be administered. Also, pray for Biddle and her team and those who are fighting to end slavery today.
