New Friends New Life (NFNL) invites the community to take part in the free, virtual 2020 Men’s Breakfast presented by the Men’s Advocacy Group (MAG) on Monday, July 27 at 8:30 a.m., featuring former MLB first baseman and anti-human trafficking activist, Adam LaRoche. The event is co-chaired by Bill Minick, MAG Board Member and Chairman of PartnerSource, and Zeke Fortenberry, MAG Member and Attorney at Fortenberry Firm, PLLC. The annual fundraiser traditionally hosted in-person, will be offered for free to the community and conducted virtually in light of COVID-19.
LaRoche advocates on behalf of women and girls who are and have been subjected to sex trafficking. After participating in an undercover rescue operation of child victims in Southeast Asia, LaRoche felt called to act. From that moment onward, he has devoted his time and efforts to address this cause. LaRoche retired from the MLB in 2016 after spending 12 years in the league and founded E3 Ranch & Co in 2017 with his wife, Jennifer. He is a powerful voice alerting others about the danger of sex trafficking nationally and internationally.
The NFNL Men’s Advocacy Group, an auxiliary of New Friends New Life, mobilizes men to take action against sex trafficking and exploitation by raising awareness through advocacy, education, and volunteerism. Over 300,000 individuals are victims of human trafficking in Texas alone – 70,000 are teens and children. New Friends New Life works to support and restore victims of trafficking. The first annual Men’s Breakfast presented by MAG launched in 2018 to cultivate and ignite candid dialogue with the purpose of unleashing the reality of human trafficking while also offering ways in which men and boys can join this fight.
