The Power of One Ccandlelight Vigil will follow the conclusion of a summit on the global sexual exploitation industry, hosted by The Carter Center and Rotarian Action Group Against Child Slavery.

The vigil will serve as a capstone to the multi-day summit.

About End Human Trafficking Now
Our goal is to build awareness of the fact that human trafficking and the sexual exploitation of children is our problem because it happens in our backyards everyday. Our mission doesn’t end with awareness, we will become advocates for changes to the laws that govern human trafficking and support the victims by helping them escape enslavement.
Human trafficking is a big business that generates $40 billion worldwide, with more than 300,000 children at risk of being trafficked in the U.S. annually. Learn more at our homepage.
