Tour Against Trafficking a Success In Tulare County!

The Tour Against Trafficking brought $450 from Tulare County riders to services in Tulare County through Family Services of Tulare County! The bulk was raised by Steve Sureweic.

On October 8, riders were greeted by children in Tulare, organized by  St. John’s Episcopal Church.

The next day, a crowd celebrated the riders and the collaborative effort to fight trafficking at the Police Officer’s Memorial Park, where proclamations were make by local leaders.  We are grateful for everyone who came out and supported this effort to bring awareness to the reality of human trafficking in Tulare County!
