Songs Against Slavery recently made Nashville their home. With at least 100,000 children trafficked in the United States every year, they have committed to shedding light on this injustice taking place in our own backyard. Over 85 counties in Tennessee have reported at least one case of sex trafficking. The average age of entry is 13 years old.A portion of the funds from the evening will benefit Thistle Farms, a local Nashville nonprofit that includes a two-year residential program for women coming out of prostitution, trafficking and addiction. They also employ the survivors through their social enterprises. To learn more, visit thistlefarms.org.
