Learn more about human trafficking and what you can do to help at the “Beyond Their Stories” Human Trafficking Conference.

The HFC Democracy Institute and the Taking Action for Peace Initiative will co-host “Beyond Their Stories” Human Trafficking Conference on Friday, September 15, from 8:00 a.m. to 1:30 p.m., in the Forfa Auditorium on the first floor of the Andrew A. Mazzara Administrative Services & Conference Center (ASCC) (Building L on the main campus).

This conference will inform you about the horrors of human trafficking and provide information about how you can help.

Human trafficking involves the use of force, fraud, or coercion to obtain some type of labor or sex act. It is a highly profitable, heinous crime and a violation of human rights.

Every year, millions of men, women, and children are trafficked worldwide – including right here in the United States. Human trafficking can happen in any community, including throughout the state of Michigan. Victims can be any age, race, gender, or nationality.

Please register today to attend this conference. The cost is $35, and just $10 for students. A light breakfast and lunch will be provided to all participants.
