Saturday, January 31 BRIDGET’S DREAM – SILENT PROTEST

January 2015 is National human trafficking awareness month.  On January 31st, 2015 Bridget’s Dream will be hosting our 2nd Annual Silent Protest.

Why in January? Why the 31st? January is National HumanTrafficking Awareness Month. The 31st is the day before Superbowl XLIX, one of the largest sex-purchasing days of the year.

Our goal is to raise awareness with our 4 pinnacle points of influence:
1.Shake our community and spread awareness about the issue of sex-trafficking in our own backyards
2.Demonstrate God’s love to girls who are being exploited on the streets so that they know the community cares and is working to bring change
3.Show traffickers and sex-buyers that their behavior is unacceptable and the community won’t tolerate it
4.Educate the local business owners on how to identify sex-trafficking and how to report this activity

We need your presence!

We need your strength!

We need your commitment!

Help us influence systemic change and radically impact a culture that says that sexual exploitation is acceptable.

Sunday, February 22, 2:00-4:00 pm SEVEN DOCUMENTARY

SEVEN, a groundbreaking work of documentary theater that captures the remarkable lives of women from around the world who became leaders in social change, will be performed in Sacramento as a one-time-only theatrical staged reading on Sunday, February 22nd. The regional premiere of SEVEN, sponsored by National Council of Jewish Women, Sacramento Section, will be held from two to four p.m. at Congregation B’nai Israel, 3600 Riverside Blvd., Sacramento.

The gripping play is based on the words of seven women who have faced life-threatening obstacles to bring about major improvements in the lives of women and girls in their home countries. They have challenged centuries-old patriarchal systems to protect women from domestic violence in Russia, to rescue girls from human trafficking in Cambodia, to give voice to the poor and prosecute domestic violence in Guatemala, to foster peace and promote human rights in Northern Ireland, to empower women in rural Afghanistan, to create women leaders in Nigeria and to educate and promote women’s rights in Pakistan.

The event is open to the public. Ticket prices are $12 Students, $18 General Admission in advance and $25 at the door, $36 Friends of the Production, including acknowledgement, and $50 Directors of the Production, who will also receive reserved seating. Because of its mature subject matter, the event is recommended for age 16 and above.

Location:
Congregation B’nai Israel, 3600 Riverside Blvd., Sacramento, CA 95818
