Soroptimist International – a global volunteer organization which advocates for human rights and gender equality has been involved in projects and advocacy surrounding the issue of Human Trafficking since 1995. Our local Soroptimist International clubs (Oxnard, Ventura and Camarillo) are hosting a free STOP Human Trafficking Virtual Event on Saturday March 6th from 1 – 3 PM.
To register please go to: www.stoptraffickingventuracounty.org. This virtual event will feature multiple speakers, including a survivor of human trafficking who now educates and advocates about this issue, a Detective with the Ventura County Sheriffs Department and member of the Ventura County Task Force on Human Trafficking, An Emergency Room Physician, and a Victim Services Provider. Only with the public being aware of and educated about this issue is there hope for ending this heinous crime. We hope that you will attend.
