Human Trafficking ...
Human Trafficking is a hot topic today in our communities and congregations; especially among our youth. Hundreds of minors are trafficked every night in San Diego County, most likely within a short distance from your doorstep. It has been suggested that for each sex trafficking victim, there are eight labor trafficking victims. As people of faith, how do we educate ourselves and our congregations, to respond and work to abolish trafficking in our County? Join us for this important discussion.
