Thank you to all those who joined us on Thursday, April 13 for the 2017 Florida Anti-Human Trafficking Advocacy Day. This event brought together individuals, agencies, organizations, churches and state legislators to educate the public on the issue of human trafficking in Florida. Together, we were able to shine a light on the great injustices of modern day slavery.
The mission of the Anti-Human Trafficking Advocacy Day is to build a collaboration of stakeholders who are passionate about abolishing human trafficking and supporting survivors, through advocacy, awareness, legislation and restoration. Attendees at this inaugural event were inspired by Christian leaders, elected officials, and courageous survivors.
