Stop Trafficking Symposium on March 26
Crime

Six Soroptimist International clubs are coming together, in conjunction with My Sister’s House, to host a STOP Trafficking Symposium.

Soroptimist is an International organization of business and professional women that support services that advance human rights and the status of women and children. Americas has launched a national campaign to help bring awareness to the problem of Trafficking. The U.S. Senate has acknowledged that the techniques used by traffickers to keep their victims enslaved severely limits self-reporting; thus, it is imperative there be increased public awareness and advocacy on behalf of the voiceless women and girls held captive.

The symposium is scheduled for March 26. Registration begins at 8:30am and the symposium runs 9am to noon at First Covenant Church, 10933 Progress Court, Rancho Cordova, CA 95670.

“Human Trafficking” is a form of modern day slavery, which means that someone has been forced or coerced into performing some kind of labor or sexual slavery at someone else’s gain.

“The Sacramento Region is among 18 medium sized U.S. cities identified as a hub for trafficking and is among the top 5 cities experiencing an epidemic of child prostitution, according to an FBI report” (Sacramento Bee, Page 5E, January 9, 2011).
