Learn about human trafficking that is happening here in Arizona. Learn the difference between human smuggling and human trafficking. Learn how you can help stop the modern day slavery. More people than you probably realize are subjected to.
Led by ALERT: the Arizona League to End Regional Trafficking. http://traffickingaz.org/
Human trafficking is the act of subjecting a person to involuntary servitude, peonage, debt bondage or slavery, for labor or commercial sexual services, through the use of force, fraud or coercion. Men, women, and children are enslaved in situations that are abusive, exploitative, inhumane, and illegal.
Trafficking victims are primarily economically disadvantaged men, women and children from all over the world. They are forced to work in the sex industry or in labor such as domestic servitude, manufacturing, construction, agricultural work, hotels, restaurants, nail salons, etc.
And it is happening here in Arizona as well as all over the United States.
The workshop is organized by the Restoration Project at Casa Mariposa and will take place in the parish hall of St. Andrew’s Episcopal church. Parking in the neighborhood around the church is free and unrestricted. The building is handicapped accessible. Spanish translation will be available.
