“Transforming the lives of trafficked and exploited women in our city.”


Grab a friend (or two or three or TEN), put on your favorite derby attire, and join us for our 5th annual Women’s Tea!

Doors will open at 9:30 am at the Henry Clay (604 S. 3rd St.) and we will have a silent auction of designer handbags, derby hats, and art prints, as well as a photobooth! Be sure to skip breakfast so you will be able to enjoy the delicious brunch that will be provided.

We are thankful to have Sergeant Tim Stokes as our keynote speaker this year. Our desire for this event is to raise awareness of sex trafficking and exploitation in our city and call our community to walk alongside these women.
