First United Methodist Church of Elgin continues its Concerts for a Cause series featuring Chicago-based vocal trio, Artemisia. Praised for sincerity, wit, and mind-blowing technique, Artemisia will perform from their vast repertoire of vocal styles in the magnificent sanctuary of the First United Methodist Church in downtown Elgin. This journey of sound and spirit brings diversity and accessibility while harnessing the power of the female voice to explore complex social issues through vocal traditions of the world. Don’t miss this beautiful experience for an important cause. Donations at the door and online will benefit the work of ATLAST (Attorneys Targeting Labor And Sex Trafficking), a project to combat Human Trafficking through Administer Justice.
Come listen with your heart and learn as Kim Downing, Equal Justice Works Crime Victims Justice Corps Fellow, shares the mission and the important work of ATLAST (Attorneys Targeting Labor And Sex Trafficking).
In 2012, in response to the increasing incidence of human trafficking in the suburbs and the lack of legal aid resources outside of the city of Chicago, Administer Justice launched ATLAST (Attorneys Targeting Labor And Sex Trafficking). Based on the challenges of connecting directly with these victims and the complicated nature of their rescue and recovery, ATLAST focuses on bringing legal services to victims via partnerships with other agencies who are ‘first responders’ (for example a safe house or shelter) which creates a better understanding of the victim’s comprehensive needs.
