Polaris Project Supports South Carolina Lobby Day to End Human Trafficking!

 

Advocates against Human Trafficking in South Carolina are stepping up to lobby for tougher legislation in the state on Tuesday, January 24, 2012 in the state capital, Columbia, SC.

Much has been written and discussed about human trafficking and now it’s time to make your voice heard.  This is a chance for ordinary citizens to come together and let those whom they  elected into office to hear what the people have to say about ending human trafficking in South Carolina.

You don’t have to be an expert or an advocate to attend this gathering.  If you’re an average citizen who is outraged by the facts surrounding children, adults, U.S. citizens and foreign nationals who are becoming victims of human trafficking, and who experience horrible physical and psychological abuse, as well as a complete loss of freedom, then NOW is your time to be heard.

 

Polaris Project will have experts on site to brief you on human trafficking, train you on how to lobby your legislators, and answer any questions you may have. All you need to do is RSVP and we will help you with everything.
