KNPR Radio Interview with Lena Walther
Prevention of Sex Trafficking through education and training
Las Vegas, September 20, 2018. Awareness in Prevention is pleased to host “Healing Notes” on Sunday, October 7, 2018, at the Italian American Club in Las Vegas. AIP will host Timea Nagy, trafficking survivor and founder of Timea’s Cause. Ms. Nagy was trafficked from Hungary to Canada after being lured by the prospect of employment. She was taken to a motel, spent several years never seeing daylight, and being forced into sexual slavery. To keep her sanity, she sung songs to herself from her homeland. Once rescued she contacted famed international pianist, Ery Balazs, and requested he record a song for her; instead Mr. Balazs flew Ms. Nagy to Hungary and recorded her song. AIP is reuniting the pair as Ms. Nagy tells her story through music which is sure to be an inspirational and emotional presentation.
With schools back in session, AIP is continuing its mission of educating and training teachers, counselors, and social workers in middle and high schools throughout Clark County school district. This ongoing program will run the course of the school year, and will aim at reducing and eliminating the chance of at-risk youth becoming victims of human sex trafficking.
AIP is pleased to announce its new awareness program “Awareness through the Arts.” This program aims to reach out to youth, age 12 to 18, and their parents in the Clark County community to create awareness of the dangers of human trafficking in a peer to peer setting. The program will allow youth to choose their own artistic medium, whether theater, dance, photography, painting, music, etc. Youth will then be asked to interpret a scenario involving a trafficking situation. Prizes awarded.
Tickets for “Healing Notes” are $75 and include an Italian Buffet Dinner, Music, Raffle Prizes, and a No Host Bar. Local artists will be featured along with our featured speaker, Timea Nagy, and International Pianist, Balazs Ery. The Italian American Club is located at 2333 E. Sahara Ave. Las Vegas, NV 89104. Tickets can be purchased at the website: http://www.aipnv.org.
