Community Awareness Event: Human Trafficking 101

January 11 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Chatham Community Library will hold a Community Awareness Event focused on human trafficking.  Representatives from Shield North Carolina will present on signs of all forms of human trafficking and present data and information to encourage awareness and understanding.

North Carolina has consistently ranked in the top 10 states in the country for having a human trafficking problem. Both children and adults, male and female are sold for sex or labor for the benefit of another. Trafficking mainly occurs in hotels, homes, truck stops, and massage parlors. Because of the intense psychological manipulation that occurs, most victims don’t identify as victims and will not seek help.

This event coincides with National Human Trafficking Awareness Day. Beginning in 2010, by Presidential Proclamation, each January has been designated National Slavery and Human Trafficking Prevention Month.   Following the start of National Slavery and Human Trafficking Prevention Month, with the help of non-government organizations, National Human Trafficking Day began and is observed annually on January 11.

Community Awareness Events are a series of facilitated and respectful dialogues on serious and difficult topics. They are designed to educate and inform the community and to promote understanding.

This event is free and open to the public. Funding for this program is made possible by the generous support of the Friends of the Chatham Community Library.

For additional information please contact Rita Van Duinen, Branch Manager for the Chatham Community Library, at 919-545-8083 or via email to rita.vanduinen@chathamlibraries.org.
