ARISE: Unchained
Kappa Phi Lambda's Annual Charity Benefit to fight Human Trafficking

DATE: Saturday, October 30
TIME: 7-9 pm
LOCATION: Roone Arledge auditorium at Columbia University

Kappa Phi Lambda, an Asian-interest sorority, cordially invites you to attend our annual charity benefit dinner, ARISE: Unchained against human trafficking. Unfortunately, this form of modern slavery still persists to a frighteningly large degree. Every year, up to 17,500 people are trafficked into the U.S., of which API women comprise the largest percentage.

Join us for a night of food and entertainment as we fight back against human trafficking. We will have performances from various student groups at Columbia, multi-cultural Greek organizations, as well as the pop-rock sensation Tim Be Told.

Proceeds from ARISE will go to the National Asian Pacific American Women's Forum, a grassroots and political mobilization group that focuses on anti-human trafficking efforts, and to the Blind Project, a charity that provides rehabilitation to survivors of the Southeast Asian sex trade.
