Kindness Fest will benefit local human trafficking survivors

SAN DIEGO (KUSI) – San Diego is in the top eight high-intensity areas in the nation for the sexual exploitation of children.

In fact, $810 million is generated annually in the underground sex economy in San Diego alone.

The Velvet Tent Project is a local collaboration of human trafficking survivor-owned businesses seeking to end exploitation through economic equity and social innovation.

The Velvet Tent Project welcomes the public to the first ever Kindness Fest, a micro music and arts festival, to directly support San Diego anti-human trafficking organizations Shyne San Diego, Victory Garden Sanctuary, The Well Path, Tyesa Harvey and Free Coalition Inc.

Coordinator & Survivor Amy Bril and Owner of Victory Garden Sanctuary & Survivor Monique Magoon were in studio to tell us about it.
