Operation Underground Railroad speaker to present at School of Government in Palmer

Tyson Wright, outreach manager at Operation Underground Railroad, is the featured speaker at 7 pm on Aug. 7 at the School of Government, a gathering of politically interested Alaskans who meet in Palmer at Real Life Church.

Operation Underground Railroad is the anti-child-exploitation group featured in the movie, “Sound of Freedom,” which has sold over 9 million tickets since its debut last month, now passing $100 million in box office revenue.

Wright started as a volunteer for Operation Underground Railroad in 2015 and is now a full-time team member.

“We go to the darkest corners of the world to assist in rescuing children from slavery and ensure ongoing aftercare, provide cutting edge tools and resources to U.S. law enforcement throughout the United States, while strengthening preventative efforts that benefit at-risk children worldwide. We will not give up and will continue to go to the darkest place until light is restored and every child is protected,” the group states on its website.

Operation Underground Railroad says it has been part of over 4,000 operations and 6,500 arrests of people exploiting children in the sex trafficking trade. More than 7,000 children have been rescued. The organization also provides robust aftercare programs for survivors that include basic support, therapy, and medical care.

“Sound of Freedom” is an independently produced movie that was financed mainly by a group of wealthy Mexicans for $14.6 million. The liberal media bashed the movie as advancing a “QAnon-worthy theory” about global child trafficking.

Even the Anchorage Daily News sideswiped the movie as a “faith-based child trafficking film,” a curious description, instead of calling it a film exposing actual crimes against children. But it has turned out to be one of the hit movies of the summer of 2024.

  1. The trafficking is real and the US is the largest consumer.

    The Biden administration is downplaying the significance of child sex trafficking while literally delivering children into the hands of traffickers (‘

    You know corporate media has hit a new low when fighting child sex trafficking has become a “right wing issue” (‘

    And yet here we are. And fight we must.

    • You’re getting your info from The Epoch Times? That’s really scraping the bottom of the barrel.

      • How about these ones from the past few years.




    • Hey David, as one of those who supported you throughout your Trials and Tribulations these last few years, I think I’m entitled to ask you one question… why the picture with the rock climbing helmet?
      Thanks for answering.

      • You needn’t be a supporter to ask. Actually, it is a rafting helmet. That has been my photo on WordPress since I was a volunteer whitewater rafting guide when I was stationed on JBER. We took military folks and their families rafting on Eagle River at almost no cost to them. It’s a great program.

    • Why don’t you get a hold of the reason why Frank Murkowski reversed the Statute of Limitations on Rape, the reason why Palin resigned, the reason why Russia exhumed graves in Russia and Jerusalem, and the reason why they are seizing assets globally? Should I say there is something that needs to be returned that’s been in the State of Alaska coffers? Payback with interest. Better hurry. I hear patience is running thin these days…

  2. Children are being trafficked in Alaska folks – don’t think this is some bizarre joke or conspiracy.

  3. The only redeeming quality of the leftist Anchorage Daily News is in lining bird cages & cat boxes. Not a surprise ADN would attempt to disparage an organization rescuing children from pedophiles.
