Please consider registering for this year's Human Trafficking Conference that UNC Pembroke is offering on Wednesday, March 23rd, from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. on human trafficking. Judi Paparozzi was able to gather some of the country's top experts on trafficking including the greatest pro-life congressman, Congressman Chris Smith, who wrote and sponsored the first federal legislation on this crime back in 2000. He has since authored/sponsored the five major federal laws on human trafficking including the International Megan's Law and the Frederick Douglass Trafficking Victims Prevention and Protection Reauthorization Act. He will give opening remarks, and we will then have a speaker on what NC is doing to address this crime, experts in law enforcement, a survivor of sex trafficking, and others who work to interdict this crime.
