Human trafficking symposium
Submitted By Kimberly Carl
The issue of human trafficking is staring us in the face every day. Unfortunately, most of the developed world neither sees nor hears the cries for help. The Bay Area, specifically Alameda County, has become known as an area of activity for child sexual exploiters and abusers.
Join us as we create a network of individuals in the Bay Area dedicated to fighting modern-day slavery. Whether you are just learning about the commercial sexual exploitation of children in your community, or are already involved in the fight, come mobilize around this issue and learn of practical ways you can combat child abuse.
All proceeds will benefit an Oakland non-profit, MISSSEY (Motivating, Inspiring, Supporting & Serving Sexually Exploited Youth). MISSSEY's mission is to respond to the specialized and complex needs of sexually exploited children through advocacy, specialized treatment and recovery services, professional training and data reporting, juvenile justice case management, and mentorship.
An Awareness Symposium on Human Trafficking will be held April 6, 2013 to benefit MISSSEY Inc., a nonprofit organization that provides services to survivors of commercial sexual exploitation.
