Sip, Shop, & Support: Scarlet Hope Denver
Sep 14, 2023 at 7:00 PM
Scarlet Hope is a Gospel response towards exploited and trafficked women in the adult entertainment industry. In 2004, the Journal of Trauma Practice published a study on the violence and trauma experienced by sex workers. Amongst other horrible findings, "89% of respondents wanted to escape prostitution, but did not have other options for survival."
Since 2008, Scarlet Hope has used methods of outreach, community, and discipleship to reach exploited and trafficked women. Their ministry has spread to 10 major cities (Denver was added in 2022). They now serve over 500 women each week with tangible resources, spiritual guidance, local church connections, a career development program, and more.
This event is a way to learn the story and mission of Scarlet Hope, shop from local artisan vendors in support of them, and meet the Founder, Rachelle Star. Drinks and desserts are provided.
