Human trafficking topic of Studium Generale presentation Thursday

PORT ANGELES — Peninsula College’s Studium Generale on Thursday will welcome Kathleen Morris, program manager for the Washington Anti-Trafficking Response Network, as she presents “Stolen Girls … Stolen Dreams.”

Thursday afternoon

The free presentation will begin at 12:35 p.m. in the Little Theater on the Peninsula College Port Angeles campus at 1502 E. Lauridsen Blvd.

The Washington Anti-Trafficking Response Network (WARN) is a coalition of organizations throughout the state that provides direct assistance to victims of trafficking.

WARN also provides training and technical assistance for service providers and stakeholders, focusing on all forms of human trafficking and the people affected by it.

Members of WARN also share information about human trafficking based on experience working directly with survivors.

WARN helps out

Since 2004, WARN has assisted “survivors of modern day slavery on their path to restoration and recovery.”

The presentation was made possible through the support of the Jet Set Soroptimist Club.

The five Soroptimist Clubs of the Olympic Peninsula have sponsored a human trafficking education seminar for the past five years.

Soroptimist program

Awareness of Human Trafficking is an International Soroptimist program that educates, connects and equips dedicated activists in the nation as well as throughout the world.

A delegation attends these seminars and lobbies the United Nations to put an end to human trafficking.
