A Conversation about Sex Trafficking in OUR Communities
Tuesday, March 19 | 6:30 - 8:30 pm
Human trafficking IS modern day slavery and its happening right here in OUR Communities.
Human Sex Trafficking is big business for organized crime and for local pimps. Its one of those crimes that is hidden in plain sight - meaning, most of the victims go to school, church and live in stable homes. It`s hard to see they are even a victim. Research shows that the average age of recruitment into the commercial sex industry is 12-14 years old and that victims come from every race, ethnicity and socioeconomic background.
Come learn how youth and adults are being coerced into slavery, why they can't see their way out, and how we can keep our families safe.
