Trafficking

As you may know, on Saturday April 10, we will be hosting a seminar looking at the topic of Human Trafficking. A lot of people hear about stuff like that, & think this happens in 3rd world countries on the other side of the world, but it is happening here as well.

As you may know, on Saturday April 10, we will be hosting a seminar looking at the topic of Human Trafficking.  A lot of people hear about stuff like that, & think this happens in 3rd world countries on the other side of the world, but it is happening here as well.  An article was published in the Long Island Press looking at some of what is happening there.  (You can read that article here.)

If you are new to this topic, this article will give you a good picture of why this matters.

Our speaker for this event on April 10th will be Steven Hamilton.  Steven is a member of the pastoral and leadership team at the Central Maryland Vineyard, a member of the Justice Response national leadership team with VineyardUSA and a founding member of the Maryland Human Trafficking Task Force.  Formerly with the Department of Homeland Security, he has been involved in fighting against human trafficking through outreach, education and advocacy for the past nine years.

[the seminar will take place from 9am to 3pm on the 10th.  lunch will be on your own]
