In response to recent allegations of child sex trafficking against two local pastors, The University of Toledo Human Trafficking and Social Justice Institute is hosting a news conference at 11 a.m. Wednesday, April 12 at Reynolds Corners Branch Library, located at 4833 Dorr Street.
Dr. Celia Williamson, UT professor of social work and director of the UT Human Trafficking and Social Justice Institute, organized the event along with other concerned professionals and citizens.
“We want to decrease the stigma associated with the alleged victims and rally the community to support child sex trafficking victims,” Williamson said. “We are eager to help the public learn more about human trafficking by showing them how to look beneath the surface in their daily lives to identify children who may be suffering in plain sight.”
