Human Trafficking In Our Area
The U.S. has become the #1 county in the world for human trafficking, superseding the Philippines and Mexico, and is the #1 illegal enterprise surpassing drug trafficking.
Human trafficking is in our area and increasing at an alarming rate! Child sex trafficking is a major cause of teen suicide.
The Carbon Valley Community needs to raise awareness of this crime. We need to define what we can do to eliminate the traffickers already here and how we can prevent further infestation. Knowledge is power.
Toward that end, you are invited to attend the first community organizational meeting on Monday, October 21, 2019, 6:30 pm – 8:00 pm, at the Prairie Greens Clubhouse, 7781 Mountain View Drive in Frederick.
This meeting will be facilitated by Jim Weber, President & CEO, Global Connection International. His mobile exhibit was a highlight of Dacono’s Night Out this summer. Jim has worked with other communities to facilitate how community parties might work together to block trafficking in their area. You can read more about Jim’s work at the GCI website: www.gciworld.org.
The purpose of this meeting is to learn more about this horrific crime and to determine who in the community is interested in moving forward to form a community coalition to raise awareness and save lives. If we ignore this issue it will only continue to increase. We must let the traffickers know they are not welcome in our community and will be caught. This is a call to action by our community members, please invite anyone who is a community leader that would like to get involved in this endeavor.
Please RSVP by October 18, 2019 to either of these email addresses:
