Mercy Ministries founder educates Lubbock about sex trafficking

Mercy Ministries is an organization that serves young women who have been physically and sexually abused.  Founder and President, Nancy Alcorn, is holding a brunch Saturday morning at the Overton Hotel to educate the community about sex trafficking, and she will be sharing stories about West Texas girls who went through her program.

Alcorn says there is a special reason why she picked the Overton Hotel to host the event.  "It's significant because the first major sex trafficking bust actually happened at that hotel, and so we feel like that is a symbol of taking back the territory, taking back what is right, righteous, and true.  We're not going to let this community allow our young women to be used, abuse, sold, and taken advantage of."

The brunch will begin at 10:00 am. Tickets are limited, but you can contact Heather Robinson at hrobinson@mercyministries.com  for more information about the brunch.  To learn about Mercy Ministries, just go to their website at www.mercyministries.org.

Nancy Alcorn will also be speaking during the Sunday morning church service at Church on the Rock.

    Lower federal courts have so far agreed with opponents of the travel ban, who argue it targets Muslims in violation of federal law and the Constitution and stems from Trump's campaign pledge to halt the entry of all Muslims into the U.S.
