CAASE Benefit @ 1130 W. Adams


This Monday, on Martin Luther King, Jr. Day, the Chicago Alliance Against Sexual Exploitation (CAASE) presents a free wine and chocolate tasting, a silent art auction, and a presentation by author Julian Sher. Sher is an award-winning investigative journalist and the author of Somebody's Daughter: The Hidden Story of America's Prostituted Children. Rachel Durchslag, executive director of the Chicago Alliance Against Sexual Exploitation, calls Somebody's Daughter "a brutally honest look into the hidden world of prostituted children in the United States. A compelling book that will touch hearts and minds and inspire people to take action." Norma Ramos, executive director of the Coalition Against Trafficking of Women, calls the book "masterful, date the most definitive account of sex trafficking of children in the United States and the culture that supports it." All the evening's proceeds will benefit work to help victims of sexual exploitation in Chicago. Free. 1130 W. Adams, Monday, January 17th, 6pm-9pm.
