The Pennsylvania Eastern District of the American Association of University Women will meet on Saturday, October 26th, from 11:00am to 3:00pm at Doylestown Hospital. The topic of discussion will be “Human Trafficking.”
Speakers will include State Senator Stewart Greenleaf of the 12th District, who serves as Chairman of the Senate’s Judiciary Committee. Two other speakers bring a wealth of knowledge about and direct involvement with issues of trafficking and its victims.
Each stands as witness to the difference that one woman can make when she chooses to step up.
Carol Metzker, activist and author of “Facing the Monster: How One Person Can Fight Child Slavery,” will speak from the vantage point of one woman, an ordinary citizen who reached out to work forward solutions to this significant problem.
Attorney Shea M. Rhodes will bring insights from her first-hand, professional experiences working on human trafficking. Attorney Rhodes is a recipient of numerous awards for her work, including the development of a Human Trafficking Working Group consisting of various local, state, and federal law enforcement agencies working to collaboratively investigate and prosecute allegations of human trafficking in Philadelphia. She also serves on the boards of directors for Dawn’s Place and New Directions for Women and is an instructor for the human trafficking workshop for the Philadelphia Police Department.
