Human Trafficking happens everywhere, from the smallest of communities to large cities. The League of Women Voters Henderson County, in cooperation with the Justice and Advocacy Ministry of Grace Lutheran Church, is sponsoring a program on this critical issue. Andrea Firpo, a representative of the FBI’s Victim Services Program, will be the speaker. The issues to be discussed include: defining human trafficking; dispelling the myths about trafficking; how to recognize its potential victims; resources for victims; and responsibilities of a victims specialist.
Bring your lunch and learn about this issue. Beverages will be provided.
