Join us for a documentary screening and conversation about human trafficking in public, widely transited, commercial front venues. Experts in the human trafficking field will discuss what you can do to take a stand and encourage local elected officials to prioritize the eradication of human trafficking. Come learn how to make a real difference in YOUR community and hear about the strategies task forces and organizations are using to combat modern slavery.
