I am proud to join the Epik Project in walking 82nd Avenue on November 23rd to raise money in the fight against sex trafficking.
I am walking because there are women and girls being bought and sold against their will - and it is happening in my very own neighborhood. I am walking because each one of those girls and women deserves to have someone fighting for their freedom.
I am walking...for my daughters...for my neighborhood...for the future women of our world...for vulnerable women everywhe
Training men nationwide to talk to sex buyers at the point of sale.
EPIK is focused on disrupting demand by asking, "in a culture that exploits the vulnerable, what's my part in creating change?"
At 10am on November 23 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 existing fundraiser.

Forced prostitution is happening here and now in our community. Participating in the EPIK Journey means standing in solidarity and saying: "Enough!"
The journey 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.
