I’ve Got A Name (ivegotaname.org), a nonprofit organization that fights sex trafficking in Lincoln and throughout Nebraska, will hold its annual Walk for Freedom on Saturday, April 22 at 11 a.m. before the Nebraska spring football game, and the registration deadline is coming up quickly.
Local research indicates at least 900 girls are sold in Nebraska each month. The Walk For Freedom is designed to create statewide awareness that sex trafficking exists where we live. Participants will disperse around Lincoln wherever Husker fans gather, wearing their “It Happens Here” Walk For Freedom t-shirt and passing out information cards. I’ve Got A Name encourages families, friends, businesses and community groups to register and walk together for greater impact.
Registration is $15 and includes the Walk t-Shirt. The deadline to register and guarantee your preferred shirt size is April 10. Learn more and about this year’s Walk For Freedom and register online at ivegotaname.org/walk2023.
I’ve Got A Name has a mission to protect and restore the lives of those who are vulnerable or victims of sex trafficking. To get behind their mission and raise local awareness, visit ivegotaname.org or email Paul Yates at firstname.lastname@example.org.
