The School of Government, a public interest group that meets at King’s Chapel in Wasilla, will host Tyson Wright, director Of Outreach at Operation Underground Railroad on Oct. 7. Operation Underground Railroad is the child rescue organization featured in the documentary “Sound of Freedom.” Wright will be in person on Oct. 7, from 5:30-7:30 pm, to talk about the group’s work at freeing young victims of the control of massive global child trafficking rings.
Founded by Tim Ballard, Operation Underground Railroad has conducted multiple sting operations, some outside the United States, and donated technological and monetary resources to law-enforcement agencies across the planet that combat sex trafficking.
Since becoming famous after the film was made about the group’s work, the organization has come under increasing attack by leftwing media members who accuse it of overestimating the number of rescues it was involved in.
Ballard, who founded the organization, has also been accused by the leftist Vice news organization of sexually harassing women. He is no longer with the organization and has denied the accusations.
School of Government is organized by Edna and Noel DeVries and features speakers on political and social issues that are of interest to Alaskans. There is no cost for the programs.
