As 2014 comes to an end we look back and see what we have done this year. It has been the birth year for HOPE. We have started the local organization for the A21 campaign to join in the fight against human trafficking. A small but awesome group has formed around the cause and has done many things. We have a website www.bvhope.org, and email firstname.lastname@example.org, instagram BV_A21_HOPE, and of course this blog. We have joined the chamber of commerce for Buena Vista, CO and have our flyers and business cards there. We now have our own HOPE letterhead. We had a Freedom Walk in October and had 100 people attend! We have had the opportunity to talk to two of our local schools about human trafficking and how to be safer. We have presented the A21 curriculum to the local schools and some of them will be using parts of it to teach students about human trafficking. We have talked to the Buena Vista town council about the increasing threat of human trafficking and the need to increase awareness in our area and had great support. We had a booth at the Christmas Fair and talked to many people about human trafficking and handed out informational flyers. 2014 has been a huge success for HOPE. We are looking forward to 2015 and many more awareness and fundraising events. Please join us! Check out our website and calendar to see where you can plug in and make a difference in the fight against human trafficking. If you don't have time to join us make an end of year donation to enable us to continue the work of HOPE.
