Human Trafficking - Youth Vulnerability Series
Please join New Hope Baptist Church and the Community Partner Network for a virtual series on Human Trafficking and Youth Vulnerability.
The National Human Trafficking Hotline is the premier resource for human trafficking statistics in the United States and it consistently ranks North Carolina among the top states in the country for number of reported Human Trafficking cases. We were #11 in 2019. The most unsettling statistic highlights the vulnerability of our youth. The age group at the highest risk for human trafficking is between 15 and 18 years of age. That seems so distant from our Wake County communities and, as parents, it is hard to believe that our own children are anywhere near this threat.
What can we do as Parents? And, as a community?
We can have the tough conversation with our kids;
We can empower youth by arming them with knowledge and resources;
We can be informed and proactive as a community to raise awareness;
We can stop victimization by bringing light into the darkness!
Two sessions are offered:
April 6 - "Defining the Risks for Community Youth"
April 13 - "Where they are Targeted"
*This event is free and offered online from 6:00-7:30 pm. Registration is required for both events.
