Breaking the Chains of Modern Day Slavery

You think it doesn’t happen here?  Think again.

Saturday January 16, 2015

8:30am – Noon

Assisi Heights Auditorium

1001 14th Street NW, Rochester MN

In lieu of our own program on January 16, 2016 we are encouraging our members to attend an event at Assisi Heights that will focus on Human Trafficking and its impact on our local community.  The good news is that there are many organizations, agencies and individuals trying to prevent this activity, as well as offer support to the victims of this crime.

Topics on the agenda include the following:

  • Learn how a young woman’s testimony helped convict her trafficker
  • Be informed on the actions being implemented by local law enforcement
  • Understand the resources provided by local organizations to assist the victims
  • Recognize how local citizens have made a difference

There is no charge to attend but registration is encouraged.  To register go to www.rochesterfranciscan.org.
