Free Me: Human Slavery and Trafficking Awareness Event

Many are unaware that Human Trafficking happens within our own borders. Canada has been identified as a transit and destination country for human smuggling. The extent of this issue within our own borders is difficult to assess due to the reluctance of the victims to come forward but the truth about trafficked women and children in Canada is that it happens. The event will include a screening of the ground breaking documentary “Half the Sky: Turning Oppression to Opportunities for Women” this documentary exposes the suffering of women around the world. The event will also include educational workshops and a catered lunch. We invite you to join our panel of experts in the discussion of Human Trafficking followed by a Q&A period.
