Buckhead-Cascade City Chapter of The Links Fights Human Trafficking in ATL

The Buckhead-Cascade City Chapter of The Links, Incorporated is made up of leading Atlanta-area African American women who are committed to making a difference in our city's horrific human trafficking problem.  They do this by raising public awareness and by supporting organizations that are saving girls and women from the sex trade and allowing them space to heal and try to build normal lives.

Carolyn Young joined WCLK to talk about the groups they support and their benefit event.   The Buckhead Cascade City Chapter of The Links, Inc. will host the signature fundraising event “Linking Heart & Soul” Mardi Gras & Casino Night Celebration featuring casino games, New Orleans style cuisine and live entertainment by Sol Factor and the ATL Brass Connection.   The event takes place at America's Mart, 240 Peachtree St. NW, Atlanta, GA 30303.  The event takes place from 8-12.
