Earlier this summer, the Micah's Promise Board, Executive Director, Bobbi Starr, and several dedicated advocates had the opportunity to host First Lady of Georgia, Marty Kemp for a luncheon to discuss the efforts being made in the Columbus area to combat sex trafficking and Mrs. Kemp's vision for a stronger collaboration across the state.

Mrs. Kemp has worked hard her first year in the Governor's mansion to bring awareness to the issue of sex trafficking. One way has been through the creation of the GRACE Commission.

The GRACE Commission is comprised of public officials, law enforcement, for-profit and non-profit organizations, faith-based institutions, and subject matter experts to tackle human trafficking, seek justice for victims, and hold bad actors accountable.

STEWARDS OF CHILDREN FACILITATOR APPRECIATION LUNCHEON

Micah’s Promise Board Member, Dr. Brett Murphy-Dawson, alongside our Executive Director, Bobbi Starr, were among those honored at a local luncheon.

The luncheon was to show appreciation for facilitators of the Stewards of Children training developed by Darkness to Light.

Stewards of Children is an evidence-informed training program that teaches adults how to prevent, recognize, and react responsibly to child sexual abuse. The program is designed for parents, youth serving organizations, and other concerned individuals. Child sexual abuse happens in Columbus, GA, so learn the facts.

Micah’s Promise believes in the 5% tipping point of community awareness to help end child abuse.
