We had two tremendous speakers at our Summer Summit to educate us about the horrors of human trafficking — a huge issue here in San Diego. With these afternoon sessions, the information is too detailed to encapsulate in these meeting notes. You really need to be there! I am sharing several links here as well as contact info for our two speakers. If you’d like to invite them to speak at your church, please contact them.
