9:40 to 11:10 a.m. | The Great Hall, Room S2-19 Each day we hear about human trafficking in the news media, but we never believe it could happen in our neighborhoods or to our children. Human trafficking affects all of society, and this session tells the story from a personal perspective. In this session, you'll hear from a survivor of human trafficking. Tables outside of the Great Hall will provide human trafficking resources. Co-sponsored by Northwest Victim Services
