Live@Central workshop will focus on human trafficking

September 4, 2018

FLORENCE, S.C. – Kelli Clune of Durant Children’s Center will present a workshop on human trafficking on Wednesday, Sept. 12, at Central Methodist United Church.

This “Live@Central” event will start at 6:30 p.m. at the church on the corner of West Cheves and South Irby streets in downtown Florence.

The free public program in Spears Fellowship Hall will be preceded by an optional dinner at 5:45 p.m. The meal cost is $6 for adults and $3 for children 12 and under.

Human trafficking is the fastest growing illegal industry in the world and is second only to the sale of drugs in profits generated, according to the workshop organizer. In the United States, most victims of human trafficking are U.S. teenagers.

In this workshop, Clune will lead a discussion about the dynamics of human trafficking on both the national and local level. The discussion will include some of the dynamics of human trafficking and its prevalence, warning signs that a person is being trafficked, what the risk factors are and how to respond as a community.

Call the church office at 843-662-3218 by noon on Monday, Sept. 10 if you plan to attend dinner or need additional information.
