The seminar will focus on the affects human trafficking has on our youth, such as the dangers of social media. It will also highlight methods that parents and the community at large can use to spot the signs of exploitation and prevent our youth from being taken advantage of by predators.
I’ve spoken on many occasions about how far reaching and traumatic an impact human trafficking can have. Its impact is felt in our suburban communities every day because recognizing the tactics of human traffickers and other sexual exploiters is not as easy as we may think. This is why it’s so important to learn how to recognize the signs of exploitation so we can protect our children and vulnerable youth from falling victim to predators.
The seminar will feature presenters from Refuge for Women, the Willow Creek Anti Trafficking Ministry, the McHenry County State's Attorney's office and a criminal defense attorney.

Many people think that human trafficking is only a city problem. NOT TRUE. Sadly, predators scour social media lurking for unsuspecting, innocent youth in every town across America.
