Three Expert in the subject of Human Trafficking Prevention will present engaging and empowering messages you won’t want to miss! Brought to you by the Edina Rotary Human Trafficking Prevention Committee.
We will have a panel discussion with three experts who have dedicated their lives to stopping and addressing the effects of human trafficking.  The speakers will discuss the issues surrounding international human traffickers, as well as what is going on within our Twin Cities community.  The goal is for all of our attendees to walk away with a better understanding of what human trafficking looks like, know what steps are being taken in our community to address the problem, and what we can do individually in our community, schools, and families to stop it.
