On, Saturday, August 5th, Genise Shelton and other celebrities came together to present the Bring Our Children Home 5k & Back to School Family Day. The event was for Our Children’s Keeper Foundation, Inc which is a nonprofit organization helping to end the sex trafficking of people of color and assist in the recovery of abducted and missing children in the Atlanta area. The organization is dedicated to “being the voice for the missing and voiceless”, along with providing support for victims by helping them with confidence, strength and creating stability in their current lifestyle.

Bring Our Children Home 5K & Back to School Family Day incorporated a 5k walk, a backpack giveaway, school supplies, self defense classes and a panel of  law enforcement and the family members of missing persons; also there were performances from a variety of entertainers. The event was to help bring awareness to missing persons of color and how to better the support of those whose families are currently in the situation.
