Community Response to an International Crisis:
A Seminar on Human Trafficking
Human trafficking occurs in our town and every town—and a solution requires action from the entire community. Listen to nationally renowned experts in the fight against human trafficking share their stories, and see how you can be a part of our community’s response to this humanitarian crisis.
This seminar is a multidisciplinary educational and awareness event, with speakers representing a variety of perspectives in the fight against human trafficking, including government, health care, and victim services. The target audience includes professionals who may come into contact with victims of human trafficking, such as health care providers, first responders, legal professionals, educators, social service providers, and clergy.
The event is free of charge, but registration is required.
Doors open at 7:00; seminar begins at 8:00 a.m.
