Please join the Junior League of Portland for an event educating on the human trafficking problems in our city and what we can do to help now.
Important advocates of the end human trafficking movement, A Village for One, New Avenues for Youth, Rabab’s Sisters, Raphael House of Portland, and Rose Haven will speak and share their stories.
The event will offer meaningful ways to engage in the Portland community and make a difference. The Essentials Drive is going on now. We will be actively collecting supplies at the event. Additionally, anyone can contribute to the drive through the Amazon and Target wishlists.
2pm: Light refreshments and an opportunity to speak with the partner organizations: A Village for One, New Avenues for Youth, Rabab’s Sisters, Raphael House of Portland, Rose Haven and our JLP members.
2:30: Presentations begin. Speakers bring a wide range of experiences and ways to address eliminating the problem and helping those who experience trafficking or are at risk. Expect to be energized to take action!
