Join us in learning about this heinous and devastating crime. We have a lineup of experts, to include South Carolina Attorney General Alan Wilson (key note speaker) to talk about what human trafficking is, how people are targeted, resources available in the community, and what you can do to help prevent it.
The cost for the forum is $15 and includes a boxed lunch.For more information, email Kowena Suckstorf at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 843-222-2105. Deadline for forum registration is October 7 at 3 PM.
Earn continuing education credit (CEU). In addition to the forum, we are partnering with Coastal Carolina University’s Division of Academic and Community Outreach to offer a follow-on workshop. The workshop gives participants the opportunity to gain a greater understanding of human trafficking through readings, case studies, and discussion. Both the forum and the seminar afford opportunities for continuing education credit (CEU). The seminar is scheduled for October 18, 2016 from 9 to 12:30 at the Myrtle Beach Education Center, 900 79th Avenue. The cost for both is $30. You must attend the Forum to sign up for the Seminar.
We will also be collecting new and gently used bras at the event for the “Free the Girls” project. Free The Girls is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that works to provide jobs to survivors of sex trafficking in developing countries by helping them set up micro enterprises selling bras. And, through the collection of bras in Western countries, we strive to educate people and organizations about the scourge of human trafficking worldwide.
