Human Trafficking – Modern Day Slave Trade

A Public Forum to bring awareness to the disturbing reality of human trafficking in San Diego will be held at Our Mother of Confidence Church, 3131 Governor Drive on Monday, May 11 from 6:00 to 7:30 p.m. All are invited.

Human trafficking is a $32 billion-a-year global industry while San Diego ranks nine nationwide in top destination areas. According to the San Diego County Office of the District Attorney human trafficking is a form of modern-day slavery where perpetrators profit from the sexual exploitation and forced labor of men, women and children. It is an extreme violation of basic human rights.

A panel discussion with Q&A from the audience includes Chief Deputy District Attorney Summer Stephan, Presiding Juvenile Court Judge Carolyn Caietti, Department of Homeland Security Special Agent Juan Jacobo, Public Defender Marian Gaston and Marisa Ugarte from the Bilateral Safety Corridor Coalition.

A presentation by Grace Williams representing Children of the Immaculate Heart, a shelter devoted to victims of trafficking will be given following the panel discussion. Donations for the shelter will be accepted.

The forum will begin with a short film clip highlighting a human trafficking survivor. Light refreshments will be served before and after the event, there is no fee. Please come to listen, learn, discuss solutions and get involved.
