The Project LIGHT team met today to discuss past, current, and future activities and accomplishments.
Below is a summary of some of the highlights.
Project LIGHT website:
We are getting great reviews on our Project LIGHT website. We had almost 400 hits in the first two weeks.
Several team members have taken advantage of enrolling in the Engage Together classes being funded by Project LIGHT. Jim offered this again to those interested. These are great basic Human Trafficking online courses. I recommend them to anyone.
If you are interested in joining the Project LIGHT team we can probably enroll you in the Engage Together training at no cost to you. Join the team and help us fight the Human Trafficking battle.
Partnered with Dr. Alberta McLaughlin and Delta Sigma Theta (DST), Omega Fraternity, and NAACP for events to recognize Human Trafficking. This included a zoom presentation and painting the city red. Project LIGHT also set up a booth in town and passed out awareness cards with NAACP and Salisbury Police Department
Project LIGHT is serving on the following committees:
Alliance for Freedom, Restoration, and Justice (AFRJ). A national Committee.
North Carolina Coalition Against Human Trafficking (NCCAHT)
Present Age Ministries. An NC effort working with law enforcement
We were invited to speak at the local Rockwell Amvets Post recently. This is a great Post with a heart to help combat Human Trafficking.
Project LIGHT has been invited to several other locations to discuss Human Trafficking. We are working on the schedule at this time.
"WE NEED TO BE IN ALL OF THE SCHOOLS."
It is rewarding to witness Barb Meidl of RCCC and her efforts to bring awareness to Human Trafficking.
We are in the process of submitting a grant request to hire a part-time teacher to work with the schools and organizations.
Present Age Ministries has certified teachers to go to schools. Project LIGHT wants to be able to assist with the expenses.
You can donate now on this website. No amount is too small.
A shout out to the Salisbury Police Department for their training and emphasis on Human Trafficking and also the Nazareth Child and Family Connection.
When you have an opportunity to mention Project LIGHT and Human Trafficking please take advantage and help with the awareness. We received a call from Wyoming talking about our work in NC. That’s great but Rowan County folks need to be educated.
We need a leader and volunteers in each of the following areas.
Law Enforcement (Sheriff's Office and all 10 towns.)
Churches (All denominations)
