Human trafficking can affect anyone, anywhere. Hidden in plain sight, human trafficking is happening right here in our community.

Join us for this important event and make a difference in the lives of others. Parents, educators, business operators and community members have important roles in preventing trafficking and helping those who might be at risk. Discover how you can prevent trafficking and help victims in your community.
