About the Event
Human trafficking is a pervasive crime, occurring in our homes and neighborhoods, its signs and symptoms often unrecognized. Please join us on January 21st as we come together to strengthen our community response to victims and survivors of human trafficking.
This event will include a panel of experts from our community to answer questions and concerns regarding the issue of human trafficking in our community. Panel members will include Officer Sarah D’Acquisto from the Wausau Police Department, Advocate Brenda Bayer from The Women’s Community, a Social Worker from Marathon County Social Services, a Sexual Assault Nurse Examiner from St. Clare’s Hospital, and a Forensic Interviewer from the Children’s Advocacy Center.
Please complete a short survey found at: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/DHY6SKJ prior to the event. Your answers and comments will help presenters cater the discussion to what community members want or need to know, dispel some myths and misconceptions, and as well learn the harmful ways social media and internet images depict human trafficking.
There is no cost to attend this community event.
