Zonta Club of Tallahassee will be hosting a human trafficking training program this Thursday, March 14, from 6 – 7pm. The program will take place at the FSU College of Law Advocacy Center at 301 S. Martin Luther King Blvd., Tallahassee, Florida 32301.
This training is foundational for the understanding of what the community can do to end human trafficking in Tallahassee and surrounding areas. Statistics show that Florida is third in the nation in terms of human trafficking.
Topics included in this discussion are: minor sex trafficking, human trafficking defined, laws that help victims, and holding offenders accountable. Florida’s Strategic Plan on Human Trafficking sets out to explain the prevalence of this issue as well as the goal of advocacy. There are so many special issues that need to be considered when dealing with this population and only then, can everyone fully grasp the depth of this epidemic.
Zontians are looking forward to this training and hope to bring information to the table that can involve the community in helping fight this terrible issue that continues to create more victims every year.
For more information, and to RSVP, please contact the Center for the Advancement of Human Rights at Florida State University, (850) 644-4550.
