Human Trafficking is a worldwide epidemic that affects more than 40 million people across the globe! Millions of which live right here in the United States of America, entering with an average age of 12-14 years old!

Often referred to as “modern day slavery“, human trafficking is defined as “the trade of humans for the purpose of forced labour, sexual slavery, or commercial sexual exploitation for the trafficker or others, by methods of force, fraud or coercion.

We have assembled an incredible panel of experts who will answer the vital questions:

  • What it is like to be involved in human trafficking?
  • How a survivor can heal and reclaim their life after trafficking?
  • What laws exist to protect victims?
  • How you may knowingly or unknowingly be supporting human trafficking?
  • What you can do to help STOP the suffering?
