On this, the 20th anniversary of the Beijing Platform for Action, there is still so much work to be done towards the equality and empowerment of women. With groundbreaking steps being taken to pass Safe Harbor/Rachel's Law through the #IamRachel movement we are so excited to announce that Rachel and Azariah, both survivors of exploitation and thrivers of the Living Water LRC program, along with Circle of Friends/Living Water for Girls Founder, Lisa Williams, will be headed to speak at the United Nations on Friday, March 13th as featured panelists for #CSW59 (59th Session of the Commission on the Status of Women).
This event will include young women survivors of commercial sexual exploitation, two students from St. Joseph High School in New York City who are actively engaged with their peers through the ECPAT-USA program in their school in creating youth awareness about child sex trafﬁcking; and will be moderated by Holly Smith, author of “Walking Prey” and a survivor of commercial sexual exploitation who was exploited in the sex industry when she was 14 years old. Please spread the word and continue to lift these brave young women up in prayer. We are making history!! For more details please visit: http://www.unwomen.org/en/csw
