Children at Risk

October, 2015

The 7th Annual Texas Trafficking Summit "Whats Next for Texas" is this Thursday, October 15th at the Communities Foundation of Texas in Dallas. In partnership with DART, CHILDREN AT RISK (C@R) will give an optional community awareness training on Wednesday evening that highlights locations where human trafficking has taken place or are considered high risk for trafficking in the Dallas area. Additionally, a basic Trafficking 101 is being offered over breakfast before the Summit formally begins. 

The Summit brings together a variety of experts and community members to explore trends and emerging issues surrounding trafficking. The keynote address, focusing on protective v. punitive responses to child sex trafficking, will be given by Eliza Reock, Director of Programs at Shared Hope International. CHILDREN AT RISK will moderate two panels. The first will focus on strategies to reduce demand for illegal commercial sex and the second, will focus on special populations who are targeted for trafficking. If you haven't registered yet, sign up today! You don't want to miss out on this great lineup!

One week after the Texas Trafficking Summit in Dallas, CHILDREN AT RISK (C@R) is honored to partner with the Red Sand Project for the 2015 Accolades Luncheon on October 23rd at Houston's Hotel ZaZa. The luncheon program will feature a special video production, remarks from artist and activist Molly Gochman, and honor the work of Senator Joan Huffman and Representative Senfronia Thompson to combat human trafficking. Please join C@R in the fight to end human trafficking by attending this important event!

Sep. 17 - North Texas Children's Summit, North Texas Giving Day, and Creatures for Kids Art Auction
 
On September 17, more than 75 supports got up and gave $11,535 to CHILDREN AT RISK for North Texas Giving Day! This success could not have been possible without our volunteers and supporters, and we are so grateful to each and every one of you.
 
During the day, C@R also hosted our Annual North Texas Children's Summit at the Meadows Museum. The theme was "Growing up in North Texas: Community-Based Solutions to Improving Social Health. The Children's Summit included a presentation by David Norris, Senior Researcher at The Kirwan Institute on the Child Opportunity Index, along with two panel discussions - one focused on education initiatives outside the classroom and another focused on health and well-being. The day concluded with a keynote address on child social health from Dr. Angela Moemeka with Children's Hospital. Thank you to our co-sponsors: Cook's Children, Girls Inc., Momentous Institute and Zero to Five Funders Collaborative.

Lastly that night, C@R was the beneficiary of Creatures for Kids' Silent Art Auction. Thank you to the many artists and purchasers who helped raise almost $3,000 for C@R!
