KellyGram – A Light in the Dark

 

 

Those of you who read our January KellyGram about Human Trafficking Prevention Month know that the human trafficking industry does not only impact foreign countries and distant states; it is a very real problem here in South Carolina. Because the crime is widely misunderstood, signs of human trafficking too often go unrecognized and unreported. Notwithstanding, last year, the South Carolina Human Trafficking Task Force recorded a staggering 678 victims in our state alone.

So how can we, as a community, become involved in the efforts to combat human trafficking? We at Mike Kelly Law Group propose that you begin by joining us at Saluda Shoals on February 29th for the 5th Annual Run for Her Life Glow Run presented by Lighthouse for Life—a Midlands-based nonprofit dedicated to educating the community about human trafficking and helping survivors on their journey to physical, spiritual, and emotional wholeness and restoration.

Lighthouse for Life is hosting this event to raise awareness and funds for its outreach program, and it’s a great opportunity to learn more about how the nonprofit serves the community and how you can get involved—all with the added bonus of having fun and getting some fresh air and exercise! The glow run is family-friendly (and pet-friendly!) and open to everyone from serious runners to young children and parents with strollers…so come glow with us! Help cast a light of hope into the dark reality of human exploitation by registering here.

If you can’t make it to this year’s Run for Her Life event, we encourage you to explore the many ways that you can still support Lighthouse for Life in its mission to educate and restore. Whether it’s inviting speakers to your organization, advocating for policy changes, shopping mindfully, or donating time, funds, or prayers—you can make a difference. For more information on ways you can get involved in the fight against human trafficking, go to https://www.lighthouseforlife.org.

Have a blessed weekend!
