Human Trafficking Topic Of CMU Event

Monday seminar open to the public

A presentation on the growing problem of human trafficking is set for Monday evening (Nov. 14) at Central Methodist University.

The CMU Criminal Justice Department along with the criminal justice fraternity, Pi Lambda Alpha, will host the event on the fourth floor of the Inman Student and Community Center at 7 p.m. The public is welcome and there is no admission fee.

The seminar is presented by The Central Missouri Stop Human Trafficking Coalition.  The group was formed in 2008 to combat forced labor and sexual exploitation of innocent children, women, and men.

Through advocacy, community collaboration and education, the Coalition seeks to identify victims, expose traffickers and buyers, promote slave-free practices and support survivors of human trafficking.

The director of the coalition, Ms. Nanette Ward, is herself a victim of human trafficking, and will be the presenter.
