Description

The American Association of University Women (AAUW) Jefferson County
(NY) will sponsor “How the Opioid Crisis Fuels Sex Trafficking: Confronting Tragedies in Our
Backyard” at Jefferson Community College’s Amphitheater on Friday the 20th of October at
6:00pm. This is a free event, open to the public.

AAUW Jefferson County is sponsoring this event to address the need for stronger awareness
concerning the connection between Opioids and Sex Trafficking. The Jefferson County District
Attorney’s Office, along with members of the Metro-Jefferson Drug Task Force, will provide a
presentation identifying different types of substance abuse and the problems that ravage our
community as a result.

“Along with the rise in overdose deaths, the North Country has also seen an increase in other
drug related crimes such as homicides, robberies, burglaries, thefts, white collar crime and sex
trafficking.” – Jefferson County District Attorney & AAUW Member, Kristyna Mills
