While slavery is often studied in history classes, it still exists today. Human trafficking, or modern-day slavery, is a growing crime that violates the fundamental rights and the dignity of women, children, and men. This crime continues to happen in Michigan and across the country.
On Saturday, February 11, 2017, individuals will have the opportunity to learn about human trafficking and what they can do to make an impact on this crime. Throughout the day, participants will interact with individuals and organizations that work to combat the crime, as well as learn ways they can get involved in anti-trafficking efforts. Come hear from expert speakers like Bridgette Carr, founding director of the U of M Human Trafficking Law Clinic, and Andy Soper, founder of the Manasseh Project. Breakfast and lunch are included for a $25 cost, and pre-registration is required at www.micatholic.org/fromdarknesstolight/. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org or 517-316-3588 with questions.
