Human Trafficking: Human Trafficking Awareness Month — 12:30 p.m., Thurs., Jan. 31
Every year, thousands of men, women and children fall into the hands of traffickers, in their own countries and abroad. Human trafficking can occur in any industry, including agriculture, construction, domestic service (housekeeper, nanny), restaurants, salons, commercial sex work, massage parlors, and small businesses. Representatives from the Washington Anti-Trafficking Response Network and the Providence Intervention Center for Assault and Abuse will provide an overview of human trafficking from a local, national and global perspective.
