Gala raises funds for Genesis Project’s work to save women and girls who are trafficked and prostituted
RENTON, Wash. - About 250 people gathered Saturday for a gala to help fight against sex trafficking and prostitution. For the last 10 years, the Genesis Project has worked to save the lives of girls and women who are caught up in the world of sex trafficking. “The mass majority are women and girls that have been coerced, tricked, or some way have gotten themselves trapped into this lifestyle. Once you’re in, it’s extremely difficult to get out,” said Deputy Andy Conner with the King County Sheriff’s Office and the founder and president of the Genesis Project.
