Our guest speaker will be Amanda Foltz who will give a talk titled, "Disruption."

Amanda Foltz is a United States Air Force Veteran, mother of 3 boys, successful entrepreneur and a modern day abolitionist.

Over 10 years ago the issue of child sex trafficking was brought into her life and opened her eyes to a world of pain and horror she did not know existed. Ever since she has dedicated her life to fighting for these victims.

Her fight began as running local chapter for Not for Sale and spearheading a yearly walk. Amanda started to educate everyone she came into contact with about the issue. She was invited to speak at inner cites schools and shed light on how our local girls in Denver are being trapped.

It wasnt long till she shifted her focus on a new way of making a difference. Since then she has been to India, Africa, Jamaica, Africa, Mexico, and Nicaragua, fighting human trafficking at the root issue, poverty and lack of knowledge.

Empowered to Connect training

April 7th and 8th * Friday & Saturday
Focus on the Family

This is a Trauma Informed Care program hosted by TCU, using strategies developed by Karyn Purvis. She was a leading expert in this field until she passed away last year. The training is webinar based and typically costs $250 to register. However, Focus on the Family is a sponsor so they provide the webinar free of charge for anyone in our community. This is great for anyone that works with children who have experience trauma.

Registration for the Focus on the Family viewing is NOT required.         Empowered to Connect

Our meetings are open to organizations and individuals who are interested in stopping Modern Day Slavery, especially in our community. We are a 501 C 3 organization as recognized by the IRS.
