About the Price of Life

The Price of Life invitational is a social justice campaign coming to the Omaha metro the week after Labor Day, September 2 – 6. Its purpose is to unite leaders from the university, church community, business arena and political realm with local and international organizations on the front lines in the battle against human trafficking. The diverse events of Omaha Price of Life will educate, challenge and inspire participants to get involved in a movement to end the modern day slavery of labor and sex trafficking beginning here in the city. The voices and talents involved in this multi-layered initiative will bring the strength of a community approach in confronting a social injustice of global proportions.

Capping the event off on September 6 is a concert with Remedy Drive and Propaganda at the Sokol Arena on the Campus of Creighton University, more about the concert and tickets.
