Mile High Magazine 02/11/2024 Love Justice International

Guest: Stephanie Piko Mayor, City of Centennial and of President Centennial Arts and Cultural Foundation and Libby Swenson Regional Director of Donor Engagement Love Justice is an anti-human trafficking organization.  Human trafficking is a crime that involves compelling or coercing a person into labor or services or to engage in commercial sex acts.  This can be emotional or physical.  It is the fastest growing criminal industry in the world today.  Love Justice works in places of transit such as bus or train stations and even the airports to identify and stop trafficking as it is occurring.  The Centennial Arts and Cultural Foundation works out of The Village Workspace, as does Love Justice. They have been working together on a couple projects and it was a natural fit.  They are working together to bring attention to the public the work of art that has been on display at The Village Workspace.  On February 21st at the Village Workspace will be an event that will showcase works of art that were commissioned to support Love Justice by the Freedom 58 Project.  Local artist created artistic renditions of stories from people who were saved from human trafficking situations.  There will be over 120 pieces of art on display.  The event will not only show the art but people will also hear from Love Justice, The District Attorney’s office, and Sherifs’ office to hear about the human trafficking impact in Centennial.  The event is free to the public.
