Upcoming Winter 2018 events
Tuesday February 6th: Presentation at St. Gregory’s in Mira Mesa
This presentation on Human Trafficking will be given by San Diego County Chief
Deputy District Attorney Summer Stephan, chair of the Human Trafficking
Advisory Council and coordinating council for the Human Trafficking Task Force,
along with Grace Williams, President of Children of the Immaculate Heart, a
Catholic apostolate devoted to female victims of human trafficking.
Combating Human Trafficking was declared by Pope Francis as a moral
imperative. It is modern-day slavery that is both global and local in its impact on
human rights and public safety. It is a $32 billion-a- year global industry with San
Diego listed as high-intensity region. Recruitment of young victims is taking place
in schools across San Diego County. Please join us to learn about the issue from
the experts and to discuss ways that you can help. Q&A from the audience will
follow the presentation. Refreshments will be served. All are welcome. This
presentation is appropriate for adults and teens. The event is from 7pm – 8:30pm and it is free!
Thursday February 8th: Panel Discussion at the Pastoral Center in San Diego
The Pontifical Council for Justice and Peace and the International Union of Superiors General has designated February 8 as an annual Day of Prayer and Awareness Against Human trafficking.
Catholics and the worldwide community are encouraged to attend a prayer service to create greater awareness about this phenomenon.
Please come pray with us and attend the panel discussion afterwards to learn how human trafficking affects San Diegans, how to support victims of human trafficking, and what actions to take to prevent it from happening again.
