“Walk For Freedom,” a march for sex trafficking and slavery awareness, was held in downtown West Palm Beach last Saturday.

Hope for Freedom hosted the event. The nonprofit based in Palm Beach Gardens helps women and men that have been trafficked or raped in Palm Beach County, though organizers said its clients are overwhelmingly young girls. The nonprofit raised over $17,558 for other Hope Houses in South Florida and beyond.
