9AM – 1PM
To Benefit MISSEY, Motivating, Inspiring, Supporting, and Serving Sexually Exploited Youth.
Hosted by NDNU Student Kimberly Carl.
“The issue of human trafficking is staring us in the face every day. Unfortunately, most of the developed world neither sees nor hears the cries for help. The Bay Area… has become known as an area of activity for child sexual exploiters and abusers.
Join us as we create a network of individuals in the Bay Area dedicated to fighting modern-day slavery. Whether you are just learning about the commercial sexual exploitation of children in your community or are already involved in the fight, come mobilize around this issue and learn of practical ways you can combat child trafficking.”
Key Note Speakers:
- Venus Rodriguez, Direct Services Manager of MISSEY
- Sgt. Holly Joshi of Oakland Police Department’s Child Exploitation Unit
- Daphne Phung, Founder of California Against Slavery
The event also includes a film screening; fair trade boutique and exhibitor’s hall; information on prevention, victim advocacy, and ways to get involved; and powerful networking opportunities.
Location: 35450 Newark Blvd, Newark, CA (This is just 20 minutes from Belmont, near Facebook Headquarters, but on the east side of the Dumbarton Bridge).
