If you click on the link, you can print out and share the flyer.

Most of the speakers will be presenting their material at the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources, 2300 N. MLK Drive, Milwaukee, WI at 5:30 pm.  One, I Lived to Tell My Story: American Actress Brook Bello Shares Her Story by Actress Brook Bello will be July 26, 2013, 2:00pm, at Mercy Memorial Church, 2477 North 36th Street, Milwaukee, WI 53210.

This series is sponsored by Career Youth Development, Inc.  The organization notes on the flyer:  “Human trafficking is a growing problem across the nation, in Wisconsin, and especially in Milwaukee.   According to the U.S. Department of Justice, as many as 300,000 American girls and young women are trapped or involved in this vicious industry.  The business of human sex trafficking is organized and violent. It is the second fastest growing criminal industry in the United States — just behind drug trafficking. It’s difficult to imagine that our own sisters, students, daughters and loved ones could be at risk of being targeted for the industry right under our noses—but they are….This is everyday life for thousands of young girls trapped in today’s new slave trade, human sex trafficking.”

About Tom Bolton

I'm a Husband and Dad, an Enterprise Systems Manager at the City of Milwaukee, and a Disciple and Lay Servant at First United Methodist of West Allis. I love working beside young people. As I study the Bible, sometimes I feel moved to work through my understanding by writing poetry. I also am going through a process to discern my calling, and to learn more about Christian Leadership. Sometimes I just feel like writing about something that grabs my attention too.
