Our next meeting 12/10 concerns human trafficking

Human beings sold into bondage and slavery?
It is happening not only here in our homeland, the USA, but also happening in the Rt. 15 corridor, our guest this Monday evening, Dec 10th is Rachel Gordner, RN, a SANE (Sexual Assault Nurse Examiner)nurse with Evangelical Community Hospital, will provide a presentation on human trafficking in the Route 15 Corridor and our area in particular.

This program is presented as non-partisan and is being held to increase the interest and knowledge of the people of our area as to the extensive existence of human trafficking in our backyard. Ms. Gordner will discuss the sources of it, how to identify potential situations, and how to then appropriately respond.

This issue is of tremendous importance to all of us and is not well known. The meeting will be held Monday, December 10, at 7pm, at the Baylor Room, Best Western Country Cupboard Inn, Route 15, Lewisburg. As usual, our program is free and open to the public at no cost.

As is our December tradition, we are asking for donations of non-perishable food and other items that will be distributed to the Eastern Union County Food Bank.
