ECPAT-USA: Buy Art Not Kids is a huge success

The Presbyterian Human Trafficking Roundtable joined our partners at ECPAT-USA at ECPAT-USA’s second annual fundraising event “Buy Art Not Kids” event last night.  I was glad to join Tony De La Rosa- Interim Executive Presbyter of the Presbytery of New York City, Lisa Anderson- Director, Women’s Multifaith Programs at Auburn Theological Seminary, Alpha Brown- Presbyterian Women of the Presbytery of New York City and others in celebrating art and ECPAT-USA’s work.

The Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) joined ECPAT by sponsoring this event. To learn more about PC(USA) work on human trafficking, please visit the Human Trafficking Roundtable.   ECPAT is a network of organizations and individuals working together to eliminate the commercial sexual exploitation of children around the world. It seeks to encourage the world community to ensure that children everywhere enjoy their fundamental rights free from all forms of commercial sexual exploitation.
