Community Discussion
A Conversation about Sex Trafficking in OUR Communities
Tuesday, March 19 | 6:30 - 8:30 pm
Human trafficking IS modern day slavery and its happening right here
in OUR Communities.

Human Sex Trafficking is big business for organized crime and for
local pimps. Its one of those crimes that is hidden in plain sight -
meaning, most of the victims go to school, church and live in stable
homes. It`s hard to see they are even a victim. Research shows that
the average age of recruitment into the commercial sex industry is
12-14 years old and that victims come from every race, ethnicity and
socioeconomic background.

Come learn how youth and adults are being coerced into slavery, why
they can't see their way out, and how we can keep our families safe.

Keynote Speaker: Theresa Flores - Best-selling author of "The Slave
Across the Street," survivor of sex trafficking and nationally known
advocate. Flores shares how she was enslaved at the age of 15  while
living with unsuspecting parents in an upper middle-class suburb.

Local Perspective:
Brad Schimel Waukesha County Circuit Court Judge, former Wisconsin
Attorney General
Paul Farrow: Waukesha County Executive
