Trenton Area Soroptimist is a volunteer group that offers service by way of fundraising and donations, public awareness/educational programs, and hands-on assistance. These women give their time and talents to local food pantries, Vista Maria, First Step, Rapha House, Stanford House, Oakwood Beaumont Southshore, and to area women’s health institutions. The proceeds from “Battle for Freedom: Detroit Style” will benefit charities that help put an end to sex trafficking. This year’s special cause is to benefit “Hope Against Trafficking,” an organization that assists women to recover from their trafficking situations. Detroit is ranked as having one of the highest numbers of sex trafficking victims and is included in a global epidemic that annually nets over $2 billion.
