ANOKHI MEDIA is thrilled to continue its partnership with the not-for-profit organization,Free-Them which advocates against Human Trafficking. Join us at their 6th Free-Them Walk on September 22nd and donate HERE (every penny helps). Proceeds will go towards a new supported housing facility for trafficked victims between the ages of 16-24, which will be opened by Covenant House Toronto this Fall. This partnership adds to The ‘ANOKHI EMPOWER ME’ Campaign through a call to action to our community.
FACT: Human Trafficking is a 37 billion-dollar per year human trafficking industry, which enslaves 30 million victims worldwide (mostly children and women).
FACT: The average age of entry into forced prostitution in Canada is only 13 years old and an alarming 87% of those trafficked in Canada are Canadians (and not immigrants or illegal aliens as most people think).
VENUE & HOTEL PARTNER:
ANOKHI MEDIA is pleased to partner with Toronto’s premier conference hotel, the Sheraton Centre Hotel, which is situated at the heart of the intersection between the financial and entertainment districts. The Summit and Ball will take place in the elegant Dominion Ballroom, and hotel guests will be able to take advantage of ANOKHI’s group discount rate for the weekend.
