Annual Trafficking Symposium: “Day of Hope: Breaking the Chains of Sex Slavery”

sex slaveryDescription:

Join the Sisters of St. Francis as we continue to explore the horrific issues related to human trafficking. Debbie Wright of Washington Crossing, PA discovered that the FBI raided her neighbor’s home computer which contained videos of young children being brutally raped and tortured. Since then she and her neighbor have investigated and uncovered the truth of the reality of modern slavery found throughout Pennsylvania. Debbie will share her story and invite you to join us as we walk in the shoes of victims and we look into their eyes and hear their stories. And we invite you to help us discover the seeds of hope, planted by the hands of modern-day abolitionists – courageous civil servants and others serving on the front lines of this saying “no more!” to boldly hunt for and desire to profit from the sale of America’s little tender bodies and spirits and others from countries around the world who have been enslaved behind America’s doors.

Date, Time and Cost:

This Symposium begins at 9:00 AM and ends at 12:30 PM on Saturday, October 24, 2015.  The cost is a free will donation.
