It’s Time to Take Action: How We Can Fight Human Trafficking
This is the third seminar in the the three-part “Let’s Talk About Human Trafficking” series, a free public event focused on spreading awareness for the crime of Human Trafficking. This event is supported by Women United.
The final session in the series, held during Human Trafficking Awareness Month, will build off of the previous two talks and focus on what we can do as a community to combat human trafficking. Attendees will learn about anti-trafficking efforts happening locally, and receive advice on how to be anti-human trafficking advocates.
The speakers are:
- Susan Dold– Moderator, Systems Administrator, Trucker’s Against Trafficking (TAT)
- Sheri Lochridge– Human Trafficking Team Leader at Covenant House New Orleans
- Jennifer Ray– Greater New Orleans Human Trafficking Task Force Coordinator
Additionally, in January, in conjunction with Human Trafficking Awareness Month, JLNO will hold a drive for Eden House and other local nonprofits working to eradicate human trafficking. The drive will collect household necessities like disinfectant wipes, flashlights, light bulbs, pillows and toilet papers. The drive wishlist and information will be available at www.jlno.org.
