Hello community members! Human trafficking does not only occur abroad. It is a system of exploitation that occurs within our own communities and along the West Coast.

The Carnegie Global Oregon ethics program recognizes that human trafficking is a local issue. Myself and some of my colleagues present a speaker panel that serves to focus on prevention efforts by those in our community and in our neighboring state of California. We have put together a panel of speakers who are working on prevention, providing support, and empowering survivors of human trafficking.

Our speaker panel includes the following guests:

Nancy O' Malley: Alameda County (CA) District Attorney and leader of the H.E.A.T. Watch Initiative (http://www.heatwatch.org/initiatives/)

Diana Janz: Director of Hope Ranch Ministries in Springfield, OR (http://www.hoperanchministries.com/)

AND survivors of human trafficking from our local community.

It is our hope that hearing about the valuable prevention work and experiences of our guests will inspire members of our community to become involved and to focus on prevention within the global community. When: May 12th (Tuesday) from 7 pm-8:50 pm Where: Lillis Business Complex 175 on the University of Oregon Campus (Eugene, OR). We hope to see you there!

Hi Lauren,

Thanks for sharing this information for our community! I'd encourage you to post this as an Event, as well, which will allow you to share more information and for community members to see what events are happening in their local area (for those in Eugene!). Wishing you all the best, and thank you again for being a part of our World Pulse community!

Best,

Eliza

Hi Eliza,

I wish I had seen this earlier, but I was busy preparing for the event. It went really well and we had standing room attendance only, but I'll remember to post these as events in the future.

Best, Lauren
