On Wednesday, December 13, 2017 we hosted our fifth #FosterChat on Twitter (@SaintAorg), in partnership with the Coalition for Children, Youth & Families and special guest, Exploit No More. We brought awareness to the danger of child sex trafficking on foster care. According to our Twitter snapshot on Union Metrics, our twitter chat had over 94,000 potential impressions, reaching 12,312 people.
