EPIK Journey 2018

Fundraising global stats: 93% left

Amount raised: $3,654

Amount left: $46,346

We train men nationwide to effectively talk to online buyers for the purpose of disrupting the demand at the point of sale.

In five years we've made nearly 61,000 contacts with known sex buyers in Portland, Foster City, Oakland, San Diego, Dallas, Fort Worth, Detroit, Kansas City, Phoenix, Tucson, Anchorage, Homer, Boston, Houston, and Denver. We do this by training teams of men to effectively disrupt the demand for sex buying at the point of purchase, via cyber technology, and we need your help.

After collaborating at an EPIK Leadership Huddle in early October, we have begun an organizational shift to the long term goal of creating Culture Change. Using our northstar question, "In a Culture that Exploits the Vulnerable, What's my Part in Creating Change?" we are exploring new ways to influence a society in which the vulnerable are valued and reconciliation between genders is intentionally made. 

At 10am on December 1st we will stand in solidarity with those being trafficked by walking Portland's local "track," 82nd Ave. Please join us by clicking the green "Become a fundraiser" button. You can also make an individual donation to any fundraiser already enrolled.
 

EPIK Journey Details
Who?...
 You, your family and friends! (Everyone is welcomed to participate in the walk, fundraising is NOT a prerequisite.) 
What?... A 2.5 mile walk and educational experience along Portland's local "track" w/ reception after
When?... Saturday, December 1st, 10am-2pm
Where?... We'll meet on the street corner of NE 82nd & NE Sandy Blvd, across from the Cameo Hotel
Why?... Because forced prostitution is happening here and now in our community. Participating in the EPIK Journey means standing in solidarity and saying: "Enough! We are not okay with this and we're doing something about it."


The walk ends at a local, well loved pizza shop where we invite walkers to share a meal and reflected on their shared experience. From there walkers will be shuttled back to the starting place to retrieve their cars.

*Please come dressed and prepared for the full force and spectrum of December weather in Portland. Why not wait until it's nicer? Because those forced into prostitution don't get that option.
