The Samaritan Women is a national charity providing restorative residential care for survivors of human trafficking. Founded in 2007, and located right here in Baltimore, TSW has been caring for survivors and creating awareness about the issue of human trafficking for the past 10 years. Please join us for “Human Trafficking 101” on September 13th at 6:30pm. You will learn what human trafficking is, where it is occurring, and why it is such an epidemic. We will also discuss how traffickers lure their victims into slavery, the typical mindset of a victim, and indicators that someone is vulnerable to (or currently) being trafficked. We'll end our presentation with a discussion about what you can do to fight this greatest of evils...modern day slavery. Our presenter will be Beth Halley, the Community Impact Liaison for The Samaritan Women. Ms. Halley has spoken throughout the Mid-Atlantic and Eastern Seaboard Regions on this topic, from New York to South Carolina. Her passion is educating our youth about human trafficking, and she has presented to countless middle school, high school and college students. She has also shared this information with many church, civic and community groups. We hope you will attend this informative evening and join us in the fight against human trafficking.
