Soroptimist Clubs to Host Human Trafficking Symposium
Six Soroptimist International clubs are coming together to host a “Human Trafficking” Symposium on March 26 at First Covenant Church in Rancho Cordova.
Soroptimist is an International organization of business and professional women that support services that advance human rights and the status of women and children.
“Human Trafficking” is a form of modern day slavery which means that someone has been forced or coerced into performing some kind of labor or sexual slavery for the gain of someone else.
The Sacramento Region is among 18 medium sized U.S. cities identified as a hub for trafficking and is among the top 5 cities experiencing an epidemic of child prostitution, according to an FBI report as reported by the Sacramento Bee on January 9, 2011.
The featured guest speaker, Nicholas Sensley, Chief of Police in Truckee, California is a internationally recognized expert on human trafficking. Hear from local representatives from Californians Against Slavery, Courage to Be You, FBI Special Task Force, My Sister’s House, WEAVE and more.
The symposium will be held from 9 a.m till noon on Saturday, March 26 at First Covenant Church located at 10933 Progress Ct. Doors will open at 8:30 and costs $10 in advance and $15 at the door.
