Thursday, July 19, 2018
6 – 8 pm
1410 Mokane Road
The Fulton/Mid-Missouri community – adults and mature teens – is invited and encouraged to attend this important educational program on modern day slavery presented by the Central Missouri Stop Human Trafficking Coalition.
Human trafficking is the second largest and fastest growing criminal enterprise in the world. And it exists in large cities and small towns in every state all across America and can affect anyone – women, men, boys and girls, domestic and foreign-born – at anytime.
Traffickers exploit their victims using force, fraud or coercion in forced labor and the commercial sex industry. Trafficking in your town could be a person from Mexico being forced to work on a construction crew or washing dishes in the back of a restaurant. It could be someone’s 16 year old daughter being forced into prostitution, illegally sold for sex for the trafficker’s profit at a local motel.
Through a multi-media presentation, including a local survivor sharing her story, come learn about this insidious crime, who is at risk, prevention and identification, and what you can do to fight human trafficking.
Who should attend? Parents, mature teens, teachers and school administrators, youth workers and coaches, professionals in the medical, mental health and social service fields, law enforcement, leaders in the faith community… Everyone!
