May 23 – Social Media Secrets Pimps

The reality is pimps no longer can sell marijuana on the street corner in California – we have too many dispensaries for legal cannabis distribution.  Now, they are back to selling sex, but it’s the teens they are after.  Come listen first hand as we have a former pimp tell you what you need to be looking out for when you allow your teens to have access to social media.

This event is for educators, teachers, counselors, group home owners and workers, social workers, parents, college students, graduate students, members of clergy, community leaders and activists, former trafficked teens and adults, and those who have a genuine interest in assisting your neighborhoods by providing them with viable CORRECT information about child sex trafficking.  This event is NOT the same talk about what pimps do once they have your teens – OUR FOCUS IS ON PREVENTION.  PREVENTION BEGINS WITH YOU.

More information to follow.  This event is free to the public, however you must RSVP to secure your seat.  This event WILL NOT be open to the public the day of.
