Anti-human-trafficking talks scheduled at CCC

Oregon’s U.S. Attorney Amanda Marshall will be among the featured speakers at the “Not for Sale” conference on human trafficking this Saturday at Clackamas Community College’s Gregory Forum, 19600 Molalla Ave., Oregon City.

This free March 1 symposium from 8:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. brings together community members to share their perspectives and experiences relating to the tragic issue of human trafficking. They will discuss how people are being bought, sold and smuggled like modern-day slaves, even in Oregon.

Other symposium presenters who are on the front lines of this fight include Kate Kimmer, a Rotary Peace Scholar who is fighting against sex trafficking through education and prevention, and Simon Tam, an author, musician, entrepreneur and champion for social-justice issues through social media. They aim to give participants valuable insight into this difficult issue and suggest ways to help.

Registration begins at 8 a.m. for the 2nd Annual Rotary SE Region Peace Conference in partnership with the CCC Association of Student Government. Parking is free.
