HUMAN TRAFFICKING: Helping Victims Reclaim Their Lives
Thursday, April 12, 7-9 p.m. – St. Bernadette Lourdes Center
HUMAN TRAFFICKING FACT: Did you know that 27 million
people are enslaved worldwide in human trafficking? Men,
women, and children are affected by this $9 billion industry.
Victims are trafficked for sex (80%) or labor (19%), and the
average victim is between 12-14 years of age. Most trafficking
rings are discovered and reported by the public, not by the victims
or families of victims.
To report suspected trafficking or get help, contact the National
Human Trafficking Hotline at 1-888-373-7888. For more

Come learn what signs to look for at a presentation and
discussion by Sherrill Rudy, Awareness and Prevention Team
Lead for Living in Liberty, a local nonprofit that assists trafficking
