Oyster Bay Town Councilwoman Michele Johnson invites residents to take part in the 2022 HOPE Walk/Ride, organized to help break the cycle of human trafficking. The event takes place on Saturday, October 1st at West Harbor Beach located at 10 West Harbor Drive in Bayville. Activities run between 7:00 a.m. and 1:00 p.m. with a special ceremony commencing at 11:00 a.m.
“The HOPE Walk/Ride is a great way to rally the community together to encourage advocacy and change with the issue of human trafficking,” said Councilwoman Johnson. “Local organizations from all over Long Island who work with survivors of human trafficking will be on hand to give informative presentations and let participants know how they can help others.”
Each year, cycling4change holds a variety of events with the goal of bringing awareness to human trafficking and to offer hope to those who are vulnerable and marginalized in society. Their mission is to raise awareness and funds to support organizations on the front lines of battling human trafficking. Residents interested in participating and helping to spread awareness are invited to walk, run or bike, with options available for various course lengths and abilities.
