Restore One is increasing its media presence and has been featured in two local newscasts and NPR East as part of human trafficking coverage.
Executive Director, Anna Smith was interviewed last week to compliment a trafficking report on WCTI. In the interview Smith spoke about the lesser known group that is trafficked—underage boys. “Most of the time when we hear about boys, they’re tagged on at the end of a study, or tagged on at the end of a saying or a sentence saying, ‘oh and it happens to boys,” Smith said.
On Wednesday night, sex trafficking survivor, Carissa Phelps spoke at Hendrix Theatre at ECU after the ‘ECU Walk to Stop Human Trafficking.’ The event was sponsored by several abolitionist groups, including Restore One. WNCT covered the lecture and Restore One was mentioned for its efforts to combat human trafficking on the local level.
Restore One will be reaching out to the media soon about its capital campaign Give For One and Anchor House, the first shelter in the nation for trafficked boys. Pray that our communications with the media are received with favor so that many will join to become freedom fighters.
