Western Area, The Links Incorporated hosted a march and rally to raise awareness of human trafficking. Members of the Links and others from the Austin Community marched from the JW Marriott to Austin’s City Hall in solidarity to raise awareness of the growing human trafficking in Austin and the state of Texas. The theme of the rally was “Not on my Watch.” The Western Area Links donated $5,000.00 to The Refuge Ranch, a haven for rescued victims of human trafficking. Austin Chapter President, Georgia Johnson was the coordinator for this event.
