Townhall: Human Trafficking and Our Community

  • Novi Civic Center (map)

Human trafficking affects people right here in Oakland County. It is the second largest criminal enterprise, eclipsed only by drugs, according to state statistics.

This is more than about sex - it's about labor and employment, children and even organs trafficking. Here in Michigan - labor trafficking is more rampant than we would like to believe.

Please join us as we discuss this horrible epidemic with local leaders. Together we can stand up, speak out, and shut down human traffickers in our community.

With special guests:
Asst. MI Attorney General, Kelly Carter (The Role of the State)
Prof. Dannielle Kalil, The University of Michigan Human Trafficking Clinic (Labor Trafficking)
Lt. Wendy Reyes, Oakland County Sheriff & Oakland County Trafficking Task Force (Role of First Responders)
Julia Pulver, RN (Signs of Abuse)
Karent Moore, Executive Director of Sanctum House (Victim Interaction)
