Human Trafficking Prevention
We were so pleased to host Camille Hesterberg and Kiricka Smith from the NC Council for Women and listen to their presentation on human trafficking awareness and prevention. We invited other community nonprofit partners, local law enforcement, SANE nurses, and community members to share in the knowledge and to work on better coordinating our services to human trafficking specific needs. This presentation and Camille and Kiricka’s work is an important reminder that human trafficking DOES happen here and it is the work of an entire community to stop it.

Emotional dialogue from all perspectives connects the devastating ripple effects of sexual assault in this documentary. Rape is prevalent yet predominately hidden in our culture. In this video, conversations about this hideous crime are addressed directly, openly and honestly. This is a vital step in empowering victims and cultivating transformation.
