Several artists and personalities will be in the spotlight and guests will enjoy a festive atmosphere enhanced by a cocktail and a gourmet meal.
« Your involvement really makes a difference in a person's life »
The funds raised will be used to provide help and support, to develop a housing resource so that sex trafficking victims can undertake steps towards social reintegration.
This support system primarily aims to equip the participant to discover and re-establish their sense of autonomy, a mindset and lifestyle change that leads to personal freedom to develop life skills.
Secondly, this support system aims to help establish a healthy community network founded on family and societal values. Our program is dedicated to young women aged 18-35, as this age group is the most targeted.

Speaker : Laurence Latreille (link), has a Major in theater and one in psychology in addition to being passionate about the complexity of the human being and its behaviors. In her talk, she first speaks about her background, her passion for theater, and how lucky she was to be surrounded by family and friends as a teenager, prior entering the heart of the matter in connection with the issue that are linked to the TVA's TV drama Fugueuse.
TVA's popular Fugueuse TV drama aired in the winter of 2018, which dealt with the topics of procuring and running away from girls, made the Québec population react enormously. Laurence felt greatly challenged by the questions of young people and also parents about what lived Fanny and Ariane in the series. She wants to take action to eliminate taboos and change the behavior of our society towards girls.
"If Fanny, despite her good living conditions, has not been safe from Damien's manipulation, are we safe?" What makes girls so vulnerable to this situation?
Laurence tells us about hypersexualization in young girls, at a very young age, to explain why so many girls are vulnerable to the yoke of pimping. She dares to go to the heart of the matter and addresses it with confidence, even if it can sometimes be difficult to hear.

Discussing about the prevalence of sex trafficking here in Canada and explaining that the population needs to be more aware of this fact. Extract from an interview on Breakfast Television :
« I think people are a little confused what the true process is when a person is taken (into sex trafficking), ANYONE can be taken. And anyone is a (potential target) victim of sex trafficking and I start by saying that because everyone is a daughter or a son of someone and until it involves you, sometime you don’t realize that. “I know nothing about this”. » (text in parenthesis and bold emphasis added)
