Join the YWCA, Survivors, Inc., and the Middle East Justice and Peace Group of South Central PA, for a free community forum that will explore human trafficking in Adams County. This event will be held in the Valentine Hall Auditorium at the Lutheran Theological Seminary. Dr. Stepanka Korytova, Director at the Center for the Study of Human Trafficking South-Central Pennsylvania, will discuss what human trafficking is. Participants will learn where trafficking happens in Adams County, hear about its global impacts, and determine what they can do to end the demand. Following a catered lunch, which will be provided, Survivors, Inc. will lead a community training on how to identify and report instances of human trafficking.
The community is also encouraged to join us at the Seminary to shop a fair-trade vendor market before the holidays. Items will include handcrafted jewelry, fair-trade coffee and chocolates, décor, crafts and a variety of eco-friendly products that empower artisans around the world. The vendor market is open to the public, regardless of whether you are attending the forum, from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m. To register for the forum, please contact Kara Ferraro at 717-334-9171, ext. 113, or firstname.lastname@example.org.
