STEP OF HOPE

Step of Hope

STEP OF HOPE BENEFIT CONCERT ENTRANCE IS FREE FOR ALL FESTIVAL STUDENTS.

Step Of Hope Benefit Concert will be featured during the Urban Dance Festival in order to raise financial support and awareness towards Human Trafficking. Students are invited to be apart of this Concert and help us fight for those who cannot fight for themselves. If you (individually) or your group would like to showcase a dance piece, please click “yes” when asked about the Step Of Hope Concert on the dance festival registration section. YOU WILL THEN RECEIVE A STEP OF HOPE INFORMATION EMAIL that will explain all that we need from you. MUST REGISTER BY JUNE 26, 2017 to participate.

ABOUT HUMAN TRAFFICKING:
Currently, there are more than 30 million slaves in the world today, more than at any other point in human history. Selling women and children into sex slavery is a big part of this ongoing problem. This illegal trade of human beings is a multi-billion dollar business and is identified as the fastest growing organized crime in the world. Children as young as 4 years old are trapped in prostitution slavery, tortured, raped, and sodomized. This is a world-wide crisis, a growing global problem of epidemic proportions. BUT WE HAVE THE POWER TO DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT. We can use our God ordained gift’s (dance) and rescue innocent children from the horrors of Human Trafficking. “Evil prevails when good people do nothing.”
