You can watch it on King County Television, channel 22. Click here to see the schedule or here to watch online.

The March 5th forum on human trafficking discussed the scope of the problem, what is being done and what needs to be done. If you think it does not happen in your neighborhood and that it does not happen to our children, you are wrong. Co-sponsors: BEST (Businesses Ending Slavery and Trafficking), Federal Way Coalition Against Trafficking, Soroptimist International, Seattle Metropolitan Club, Seattle Against Slavery, Washington Engage, and Youth Care - The Bridge Program

Speakers:

Leslie Briner, MSW, is Commercial Sexual Exploitation Training and Policy Coordinator for YouthCare in Seattle. She implemented the Bridge Program, a Continuum of Services for Sexually Exploited youth.

Valiant Richey, a Senior Deputy Prosecuting Attorney for King County, works in the Special Assault Unit which handles cases involving sexual abuse of children and adults and the physical abuse of children. He is one of two local coordinators for "Buyer Beware: A Partnership to End Sexual Exploitation," a King County initiative funded by Demand Abolition.

Rose Gundersen is co-founder and Director of Washington Engage which works with community coalitions to deal with human trafficking emphasizing prevention and development.
