Anti-Human Trafficking Group to host the 10th Liberator Awards
Sister Margaret Nacke to receive the Radical Abolitionist Award
Columbus OH, March 3, 2023: Sister Margaret Nacke will be honored along with other leading abolitionists from around the country who are fighting to end modern day slavery on Saturday March 25th at the Greek Annunciation Banquet Center in Columbus Ohio. Sister Margaret Nacke, Sister of St. Joseph, Concordia, Kansas, has been involved with anti-human trafficking initiatives for the past 11 years. She has engaged in ventures that involve Adult Life Transitions with persons in the U.S. and abroad. As chair of Survivor Services Working Group, committee of US Catholic Sisters Against Human Trafficking, she has been instrumental in creating programs that advance education about trafficking.
The Liberator Awards will be presented in the categories of: Individual, Volunteer, Organization, Law Enforcement/Public Servant, female and male Survivor of the Year, the Liberator of the Year and the Radical Abolitionist Award. All proceeds from the evening will benefit future S.O.A.P. outreach initiatives that help rescue missing children from being trafficked, as well as hold survivor retreats for both male and female survivors of human trafficking to heal and recover.
S.O.A.P. was founded by author, advocate and survivor, Theresa Flores. On her worst night, after being auctioned off to nearly two dozen men in a dingy, dirty, inner city Detroit motel, Theresa recalled the only item that would have reached out to her, a bar of soap. With that in mind, she created S.O.A.P. — Save Our Adolescents from Prostitution — to help reach out to other victims. S.O.A.P. has distributed over 2 million bars of soap with the national human trafficking hotline number to thousands of hotels around the country.
