Last Saturday morning Patriots United held a breakfast attended by hundreds.
Tables even overflowed into the exhibit room.
I didn’t get a chance to take notes because I got drafted to take photos.
One of these days, I’ll get around to posting the politicians who attended.
As luck would have, it Patriots United has issued a press release, which is below:
Patriots United Announces Plan for Anti-Trafficking Task Force
CRYSTAL LAKE, IL – On Saturday, February 8th, nearly 400 attendees to the 5th Annual Celebrating Life Unity Breakfast joined in a resounding declaration of support against the insidious enterprise of human trafficking.
Concerned citizens and elected officials came from McHenry, Lake, Kane and Cook Counties and included students from several local high schools and regional colleges including Aurora University and Chicago’s Moody Bible Institute.
- Congressman Randy Hultgren
- former Congressman Don Manzullo
- State Senator Karen McConnaughay
- Ben Anderson of LostandFound and
- Laila Mickelwait of Exodus Cry
joined in a rallying cry of support to end the injustices of modern day slavery known widely as human trafficking.
“We cannot allow this to go unaddressed on our watch.”
The face of human trafficking was clearly illustrated as Laila flashed actual mug shots of women who had been arrested multiple times for prostitution, clearly depicting their declining health.
Her 40 minute talk on the subject had the audience riveted as she showed the horrible effects of pornography and explicit violent acts within video games on a viewer’s brain chemistry, effects that have been proven to be as addictive as heroin.
A call to action was declared by President Joe Edwards stating that Patriots United would lead the creation of a joint task force of
- community organization
- law enforcement
- legislators and
to effect positive change in this area.
“Our organization desires to link experts across multiple spheres of influence and jurisdictions to assure we keep our women and children safe.“We cannot allow this to continue on our watch!”
