The complex and terrifying issue of human trafficking is the focus of UnBound. This nonprofit organization is combating the issue by activating communities to fight human trafficking. According to their Facebook page, “there are over 30 million slaves in the world today.” UnBound believes they can make a difference, and they believe the Bryan and College Station communities can help. Unfortunately, BCS is a prime target for trafficking because it is right in the middle of the most heavily trafficked route in Texas.
UnBound focuses on preventing trafficking by raising awareness, conducting professional trainings and facilitating survivor advocacy. This is an important cause that affects us all, and you can help by attending the UnBound Benefit Concert with Zach Winters and Jason Barrows this month at the Palace Theater. Tickets are being sold through Antioch Community Church, and all proceeds go directly to UnBound College Station’s efforts to combat slavery and ignite hope in communities across the country.
Zach Winters, a folk-pop artist, travels across the country with his family to play music. Winters is known for putting on concerts benefiting different causes and people groups, including Syrian refugees and laboring mothers and orphans in Mexico. Paste Magazine calls Winters’ songs “perfect for a hushed afternoon in the season that bears his name.”
Jason Barrows, who just released his debut album, plays Christian/gospel music that enlightens listeners and speaks of redemption through stunning lyrics and 80s new wave guitars.
Both artists are bound to please all who attend with their varying styles and passionate musical styles. The Palace Theater, located in Downtown Bryan, is a staple music venue in the area. The large stage and outdoor seating is unlike any other venues in the area.
The UnBound Benefit Concert will take place March 25th from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. at the Palace Theater. Tickets can be purchased at www.antiochs.org/concert for $30 each. This is an all ages event that will support survivors of human trafficking and prevent future damage in the Brazos Valley.
