Home for Victims of Modern-Day Slavery to Open in Seattle (Flyer Updated)
I’d like to announce some great news!
The Tronie Foundation, in partnership with our non-profit JustOne, will be hosting the grand opening of the first ever shelter/home for victims of human trafficking (modern-day slavery) in the state of Washington on February 1st.
Trong and Rani, the founders of the Tronie Foundation, are both survivors of slavery. Rani’s parents were tricked into handing their daughter over to a broker of slavery in India while Trong escaped his hometown on a boat while the Vietnamese government sought to enter his city to recruit child soldiers. They both desire to build more of these shelters/homes around the world to help victims of human trafficking.
JustOne has agreed to partner with the Tronie Foundation in developing more shelters/homes such as this one around the world by helping to bring more public awareness about modern-day slavery and developing creative networks of those desiring to mobilize themselves and others on the issue.
If you live in the Seattle area, please try to come out and support this opening (see flyer below).
Greg Russinger and I will be facilitating the event. Please feel free to email Greg at [email protected] if you are interested in volunteering or helping us get the word out in the Seattle area.
Moving forward… Charles
