Benefiting A 2nd Cup’s Culinary Training program for Human Trafficking Survivors
Brighter Through the Flames – is a photography exhibit shedding light on human trafficking and helping to support survivors. While not everyone can relate directly to the trauma and challenges of surviving human trafficking. Most of us can relate on some level to overcoming adversity and trauma, while emerging stronger on the other side. Much like A 2nd Cup’s logo the Phoenix rising from the ashes. So we want to see your take on how we are Brighter Through the Flames
