Event Description:
Jasmine Grace Marino
Human Trafficker Survivor
Author & Founder of Bags of Hope Ministries
All it took was the purchase of a $7 drink by an attractive man, and the course of Jasmine Marino?s life was permanently altered.
Twenty years ago, Marino was working at a hair salon in Revere and studying journalism at North Shore Community College in Lynn.
During a night out with friends at the Palace nightclub in Saugus, she met a man through mutual friends, who offered to buy her a drink. She accepted, and within a few months that man became her human trafficker, controlling every aspect of her life and selling her body for his own gain.
As a survivor of domestic sex trafficking and drug addiction, Jasmine will share her own personal story which includes being an advocate and abolitionist for human trafficking, and her road to recovery, relapse, and redemption.

On the day of the event, BFF is sponsoring a collection drive on behalf of Bags of Hope Ministries (BOHM). Jasmine founded BOHM to provide bags of care items to the vulnerable women who are living on the streets or are in programs throughout Massachusetts and New Hampshire affected by trafficking, prostitution, addiction, and homelessness. 
We would appreciate your support by donating care items for these women to let them know that we care and there is hope for a better way of life.  BFF will also be providing note cards during the event for you to include a note of encouragement to these women with the gift bags that will be donated.
