Awareness Symposium on Human Trafficking to Benefit MISSSEY
The issue of human trafficking is staring us in the face every day. Unfortunately, most of the developed world neither sees nor hears the cries for help. The Bay Area, specifically Alameda County, has become known as an area of activity for child sexual exploiters and abusers.
Join us as we create a network of individuals who are dedicated to fighting modern-day slavery. Whether you are just learning about the commercial sexual exploitation of children in your community, or are already involved in the fight, come mobilize around this issue and learn of practical ways you can combat child sex trafficking.
Hosted by NDNU student, Kimberly Carl, all proceeds will benefit an Oakland non-profit, MISSSEY, (Motivating, Inspiring, Supporting & Serving Sexually Exploited Youth.) MISSSEY's mission is to respond to the specialized and complex needs of sexually exploited children through advocacy, specialized treatment and recovery services, professional training and data reporting, juvenile justice case management, and mentorship.
Symposium Electives Include: Beginning to advanced content/updates & current local issues/prevention/victim advocacy/ practical ways individuals can get involved.

||Hello! I am really excited about this unique opportunity! I'm just wondering if you have an agenda available. This website says the event starts at 8:30 and the NDNU site says it starts at 9. Also, I am trying to figure out if, for example, the screening of the film haps to be in the beginning or the end, as I may skip that part of the symposium to make another commitment. Thank you! |
