Find Your Voice: Break the Chain Conference on Human Trafficking and Modern Day Slavery


Women of Vision, South Puget Sound Chapter, announces registration is now open for a conference on Human Trafficking and Modern Day Slavery. This is a day-long conference including keynote presentations, breakout sessions, and information booths.

The goal of the conference is to learn about human trafficking and modern day slavery, both in our local area and internationally, and find out what we can do to make a difference. World Vision partner church Chapel Hill Presbyterian in Gig Harbor has generously offered their facility and support for the planning and execution of the conference.

This conference is open to all adults, college and senior high students, both men and women, and all organizations are encouraged to invite their constituents. Church groups with a focus on countries significantly impacted by these issues will want to attend. Nonprofit organizations and college groups motivated to advocate in these areas will want to take part. Groups investing in micro-finance will find these discussions very meaningful as well, as evidence of how important their commitment is to micro-finance projects.
