The goal of the initiative is to raise awareness about human trafficking, assure that hotel staff receive appropriate training, and distribute educational materials to hotels willing to make them available in lobbies and guest rooms..

Drum for Peace

When the Poor Handmaids gathered and created a musical CD, they did not know the ripple effect that effort would create. Sales of those songs purchase elk hides. The elk hides are used by creative youth in Chicago to make their own handmade drums. The drums bring a message of PEACE to a Chicago neighborhood steeped in violence. A small stone makes many ripples.

“Over 300 youth under the age of 20 perished in Chicago in the past three years, three in the last two months,” said Father Bruce Wellems to the crowd gathered outside the Holy Cross/Immaculate Heart of Mary Parish. He challenges parish members to make their own wood drums in the way of Native Americans who believe “If 100 drums beat as one, you can move the earth toward peace.” The drum is central to the Native American community and ceremony and considered to be the heartbeat of the Earth.
