Here is a meeting notice forwarded by Joe Edwards, President of Patriots United. That is the group who sponsored the breakfast on sexual trafficking a couple of Saturdays ago.
Below is Edwards’ cover letter:
I anticipate this to sell out so I highly recommend registering early.
The Steering Committee has been formed with the goal of launching a Human Trafficking Prevention Task Force as discussed at the February 8th breakfast.
That committee will have a structure with clearly defined goals and objectives by the end of April at which time we will communicate specifics.
Until then, we will funnel trainings such as this communication and other events that come to our attention.Thank you for caring.
