Human trafficking is a widespread and often invisible crime that occurs worldwide and in our own backyards. It is the act of compelling someone into work or commercial sex acts through force, fraud, or coercion. Although it is illegal everywhere, human trafficking happens everywhere, including in our community. Whether or not we recognize it, this is an issue we all touch daily through our professional and personal lives.
Fortunately, we are positioned to drive a powerful, unified strategy to combat human trafficking together as a community. United Way of Westchester and Putnam (UWWP) is proud to invite you to join our upcoming virtual event, Understanding Human Trafficking: The Intersections & Complexities.
UWWP is co-hosting this hour-long Live Learning Session with United Way Worldwide’s Center to Combat Human Trafficking on October 28 at noon. The event will be co-facilitated by a team of survivor leaders who are experts in the anti-human trafficking movement. The session will provide an overview of the issue of human trafficking and information on how we can strategically and collectively combat it in our community.
