Human trafficking is modern-day slavery that involves the use of force, fraud, or coercion to obtain some type of labor or commercial sex act. It is estimated that human trafficking generates many billions of dollars of profit per year, second only to drug trafficking as the most profitable form of crime. It is a $290+ million illegal industry in Georgia alone.
In our ongoing effort to combat this evil, Justice & Peace Ministries presents Human Trafficking: Conquered, a one-hour workshop aimed at training supporters of reigning MLS Cup Champions Atlanta United to learn the signs of human trafficking and the actions you can take to stop it. Because we know Atlanta United supporters have just as much passion for our city and communities as they do the club, we invite all members of supporters groups and anyone who stands with Atlanta United to attend.
The workshop is on Sunday, February 10, at 1:30 p.m. in the Terrace Halls at the Chancery, 2401 Lake Park Drive SE, Smyrna 30080.
Please see the attached flyer and share it in your bulletins and newsletters. Supporters are also invited to bring your Atlanta United scarf to the presentation.
For more information and to RSVP, please contact Jayna Hoffacker, Justice & Peace Ministries Program Assistant, at firstname.lastname@example.org or 404-920-7898.
