Bishop David Rice has issued a press release to announce the upcoming Tour Against Trafficking Event in the Diocese of San Joaquin. From October 2-23, a group of bicyclists (5 to 8 from the Tour Team) will ride 750 miles over 18 days throughout Central California. As the Tour goes through communities, towns and cities, the Tour Team will be joined by others including various cycling clubs throughout the valley. Large numbers of cyclists are anticipated during different ‘legs” of the Tour.
The tour will have 26 stops which include each church throughout the Episcopal Diocese of San Joaquin. Prior to the tour, many local communities will host educational events about the subject of human trafficking, which has been equated with modern-day slavery. For more details, see the 24 August Press Release.
