Join us on November 4th to Walk4Freedom! This unique 5K fun run and 1.5 mile walk brings our Tucson community together to combat sex trafficking and celebrate the work that is being done in our city to eradicate this terrible abuse. Each year, passionate supporters raise thousands of dollars for programs that PREVENT sexual exploitation and cultivate a new generation of abolitionists. Just as important, the Walk4Freedom also raises awareness about how we can work together to better protect women and children in Tucson and end sex trafficking.
