People can learn more about human trafficking at a free one-day forum hosted by Victim Services Huron.

Law enforcement and social service providers, schools, hotel establishments, and the public will be offered updated information on trends, recruitment style, and warning signs.

Victim Services Executive Director Deborah Logue said individuals and family members who lived the experience will talk about the challenges they faced. A local woman who was drawn in to the life will share her store and explain how she got out.

Participants will find out what rural recruitment looks like and how the predator is successful.

The Human Trafficking Forum takes place Thursday, October 3 at the Seaforth Community Centre, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.

Limited seats are available. Tickets must be pre-registered at https://www.eventbrite.ca/e/human-trafficking-forum-tickets-68170211939.

Victim Services Huron works closely with police, emergency medical services, and social service advocates to ensure members of the community are supported during and immediately after a crisis or traumatic event, such as domestic violence, sexual assault, theft or fraud, homicide, fire, and vehicle collisions.
