Event description

Description

IndyStar opinion editor Tim Swarens, funded by a grant from the Society of Professional Journalists, has spent the past year investigating child sex trafficking in the United States and around the world. Swarens’ work has taken him to eight countries on five continents since October 2016 to better understand why an estimated 1.2 million children a year fall victim to sex trafficking. A series of Swarens’ columns on the topic is scheduled for publication by the USA Today Network in January 2018.

Join us Wednesday, October 25 for In Our Own Backyard. Swarens will moderate a panel discussion with IMPD’s Jon Daggy, Psychologist Dr. Hugh Hanlin of Ascent 121, and survivor Heather Sewell. The group will discuss the demand side of child trafficking here in Indianapolis.
