Afternoon Session – Human Trafficking

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.

Churches can help victims by providing emergency backpacks to North County Lifeline – please see the attached flyer.

There are also some assembly bills coming up that are important to support. I’ll share that info once I get it. January is Human Trafficking Awareness month and there will be a street fair in San Diego on Jan 21, 2017. I’ll pass along details when I get them.
