Sold: Nashville’s Human Trafficking Problem

and

how we can be part of the solution

 

 

Hi everyone!
I’m a member of the Junior League of Nashville’s Human Trafficking Awareness Committee and all month (January 2020) we’ve been presenting a full curriculum of trainings, education opportunities and documentary film screenings on the issue of Human Trafficking.
In partnership with some of our community partners, we are hosting a free, public event at the end of the month to candidly dig in to this issue – happening right here in our city. It would be impactful to have you join us, as influential community leaders, in this conversation.  Learn from local experts about how human trafficking impacts all of us, as community members, and understand more regarding the comprehensive efforts being made to combat human trafficking right here in Middle Tennessee.
The Junior League of Nashville and our partners want to help you learn more about this issue and be a part of the solution. Join us for an insightful program and interactive panel discussion shedding light on Nashville’s human trafficking problem and how our city is working to solve it.
