Sex Trafficking: The Facts, The Figures, The Victims

The San Diego Partnership Churches (United Church of Christ) Presents

Sex Trafficking:  The Facts, The Figures, The Victims

A Special Program at the United Church of Christ of La Mesa

 

 

MILLIONS of women and girls throughout the world live in sexual slavery…MILLIONS.   And, yes, it’s happening in your country, your state, your city, your neighborhood.  Each year between 800,000 and 900,000 people are trafficked across international borders – 80% of whom are women and children.  An estimated 14,500 – 17,500 of them are brought into the United States, most of them into New York, CALIFORNIA and Florida.

What’s being done about it?

What could be done?

What can you do?

At 6:00pm on October 3, 2010 Sam Buchenau, Soroptimist International of Valley de Oro, and Dawn Marie Lemonds, Soroptimist International of Newport Harbor Area, will discuss their organization’s “Stop Trafficking” program and a number of related topics, among them the demand side of trafficking, how sex trafficking fits into the UN’s Millennium Development Goals and how society can consider itself civilized when one gender can buy the other.

We invite you to join us for this free program at Friendship Hall, United Church of Christ of La Mesa, 5940 Kelton Avenue, La Mesa, CA 91942.  A potluck dinner will start the evening (please bring a dish to share and your own plate, fork, etc.).
