Not only will your business receive recognition during the event, but 100% of the proceeds will go directly toward supporting those in need in our community.

July 31, 2023 was World Day Against Trafficking Persons

If you’d like to learn more about this subject but can’t bring yourself to read books written by survivors or view movies on the topic, please consider reading my book Saving Aimee/Saving Margo. You will learn how an upper middle class teen can be groomed by traffickers. Please help me raise awareness.

Book Launch:

On August 6, 2022 Barbara hosted a Book Launch Party. First, she was interviewed by Nicolette Lemmon about her writing journey. To view and hear the interview, click here or on the image to the right.
