Freedom House Gala

April 29, 2017

FREEDOM HOUSE ANNOUNCES PLANS TO HONOR POLARIS &
HOMELAND SECURITY INVESTIGATIONS SAN FRANCISCO AT GALA

Justin Dillon to Keynote Annual Event to Benefit Human-Trafficking Survivors  April 29  Foster City
Freedom House, a key provider of safe housing and direct services to human-trafficking survivors in Northern California hosts the 8th Annual Gala, on Sat, April 29, at 6:00pm, at the Crowne Plaza Hotel in Foster City. Polaris, a leading organization in the global fight against human trafficking and modern slavery, will receive the Freedom House 2017 Stewardship Award, and Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) San Francisco will be given the 2017 Guardian Award for its work with human-trafficking survivors.

Justin Dillon, founder & CEO of Made in a Free World & author of “A Selfish Plan to Change the World,” will reveal the secret to a life of deep and lasting significance: the discovery that our need for meaning is inextricably linked to the needs of the world.

“Resilient Butterflies” is the Gala theme, as a survivor-graduate from the non-profit’s Monarch residential shelter for women, will share her personal journey from exploitation to independence. Jaida Im, Freedom House founder and executive director, will present insights into the lives of survivors who have benefited from the long-term aftercare program, which offers individualized case management, mental-health counseling, educational resources and employment opportunities.

“Polaris and HSI San Francisco serve on the front line of the anti-human-trafficking movement. Since the Monarch opened in 2010, Freedom House has received referrals and safely housed women who have been rescued by these important agencies. Gala guests will benefit from learning more about their work while being inspired by Justin Dillon’s keynote about using one’s passion to save a life or change history.” Tickets are $150 per individual, $1,500 for a table of 10, and $75 for a student ticket. Tickets: www.FreedomHouseSF.org/Events.
