About the Diamond Gala

Human Trafficking is currently the 2nd largest international crime industry, right behind the illegal drug trade, and is active in all 50 states across the U.S. The National Capital Area is vulnerable to human trafficking due to its location, large amount of tourism, and easy access to three airports. The Salvation Army has taken a leadership role in combating this issue. In 2018, we launched a much-needed program to provide shelter and services to survivors of human trafficking.
To support this effort, The Salvation Army National Capital Area Command invites you to join us for The 2nd Annual Diamond Gala at The Fairmont Hotel on Saturday, March 9, 2019.
