June 2014 Coalition Meeting

We had a monthly coalition meeting yesterday, and we talked about important topics like the decriminalization of marijuana and discussed exciting news and updates from each partner coalition.

We also had a very intriguing guest speaker, Nanette Ward, from The Central Missouri Human Trafficking Coalition come present on their efforts to stop human trafficking, especially on a domestic scale, as it happens right here in Columbia, and throughout the rest of the state. We learned a lot about different signs of what a trafficked victim will look and act like. We also learned that often times, it is easy to overlook people and establishments which might be involved with human trafficking. There are many ways to help.

Check back soon to see what we’ve been up to…
