Jenna Bing, St. Hubert’s Episcopal, Kirtland Hills, OH. Trained speaker for the Northeast Ohio Collaborative to End Human Trafficking. Co-founder of Lake County Collaborative to End Human Trafficking.
The crime of Human Trafficking is second only to drug trafficking, and these crimes are often intertwined. Like drugs, human trafficking is worldwide, national, and importantly, a local issue. Due to the complexity and hidden nature of this crime, human trafficking can be difficult to identify and to address in communities, but it should not be ignored. This workshop will provide an overview of Human Trafficking to educate and build awareness of this issue.
While the scope of human trafficking can seem overwhelming, the speaker will discuss how three concerned women began to address the issue in their community through collaboration with law enforcement, social services, community hospitals, and local government.
