Human Trafficking event scheduled for March 8

Posted: Friday, February 22, 2013

Human trafficking is a global, national, state and local issue. Just as it happens around the world, it happens in our own hometown. Victory Noll Center hosts “Service Provision through Their Eyes,” a human trafficking education and training event Friday, March 8.

This program is for criminal, civil and human service providers. It is for teachers, hotel managers and personnel and for anyone who works with young people. Those attending are encouraged to come and learn the community impact of global human trafficking, and understand the dynamics of sexual victimization. Criminal, civil and human service providers can learn how to improve success in service provision and how to address issues of compassion fatigue.

There is no cost for the event, but registration is required. Anyone interested is encouraged to preregister by Friday, March 1. Registration will also be open the morning of the event beginning at 8:30 a.m. at Victory Noll Center, located at 1900 W. Park Drive. The event runs from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. and includes a continental breakfast and lunch.

Victory Noll Center is a ministry of Our Lady of Victory Missionary Sisters, and is dedicated to fostering spiritual growth and personal development in a welcoming environment, advocating social justice awareness and response, and nourishing people to live and share God’s love in today’s world.
