Human trafficking is a widespread and often-invisible crime that takes place both around the world and in our own backyards. It is the act of compelling someone into work or commercial sex acts through force, fraud, or coercion. Although it is illegal everywhere, human trafficking happens everywhere, including in our own community. Whether or not we recognize it, this is an issue we all touch every day through both our professional and personal lives.
Fortunately, as a community, Wayne County is positioned to drive a powerful, unified strategy to combat human trafficking together. United Way of Wayne County is proud to invite community members to join its upcoming virtual event Understanding Human Trafficking: The Intersections & Complexities.
The United Way of Wayne County is co-hosting this hour-long Live Learning Session with United Way Worldwide’s Center to Combat Human Trafficking on Wednesday, March 2 at 3:00 PM and the event will be co-facilitated by a team of survivor leaders who are experts in the anti-human trafficking movement. The Session will provide an overview of the issue of human trafficking, as well as information on how we can strategically and collectively combat it in our community.
