Breaking the Chain of Human Trafficking
February 15, 2018 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm
This event was rescheduled from its original date due to inclement weather.
National Human Trafficking Awareness Day is observed every year on January 11. This observance was started in 2011 by Presidential Proclamation of National Slavery and Human Trafficking Prevention Month. The anniversary of this proclamation became known as National Human Trafficking Awareness Day. Currently, many countries in the world including the USA are the source, transit and destination country for trafficked children, women, and men. These people can be of foreign nationalities or the citizens of the USA, but they are all subjected to injustices of human trafficking, including sex trafficking, forced labor, involuntary servitude, forced marriage and debt bondage. Many mass campaigns are organized to observe National Human Trafficking Awareness Day. This helps raise public awareness of the crime of human trafficking and helps protect some vulnerable members of our community.
During the event, we will hear from the St. Louis County Police Department (Human Trafficking Task Force). We also are honored to have Chief Belmar of the St. Louis County Police Department joining us for the opening session. This organization will discuss their important work responding to human trafficking and the support available for victims and their families in the Greater St. Louis Area and beyond.
