A Night to Fight for Freedom

Come to A Night to Fight for Freedom with International Justice Mission and Sseko Designs!


Learn about the concept of a Rescue Party. A Rescue Party is set-up to inform participants on the realities of human trafficking and slavery that still exists today. Be prepared to open your eyes, your heart, and you guessed it, your wallets. You will be introduced to the work of International Justice Mission and how you may become a Freedom Partner for as little as $1.30/day.


Also, there will be an opportunity to purchase stunning, handcrafted products sold through Jennifer Keltner, a Sseko fellow. She uses her passion and skills to elevate your wardrobe and build a brighter future for herself and her sisters in Uganda.


Enjoy a night of fun, food, great music, and incredible connections. Guests will be entered to win a drawing every 15 minutes beginning at 7 PM. If you become a Freedom Partner, you will be entered into a grand prize drawing to be announced. The silent auction drawing includes masterful pieces of art created that evening by two different upcoming artists. The original pieces will be the artists' interpretation of fighting for freedom.
