Stowe Center Salon Series Looks at Preventing Human Trafficking

Harriet Beecher Stowe fought to end slavery, yet it still exists today. How can we combat the problem? Find out at a Salon discussion at the Harriet Beecher Stowe Center in Hartford on Thursday, Nov. 15.

The salon is part of Seizing Liberty, Marking the 150th anniversary of the Emancipation Proclamation.

Join the discussion with guests Steven Ferraro, director of Loving Our Children, a grassroots group working to build awareness among parents and teens, and Tammy Sneed, director of Girls Services at CT Department of Children and Families. They will offer ideas on how to help eradicate human trafficking in Connecticut.

Admission toSalons at Stowe is free. RSVP by calling 860.522.9258 ext. 317 or email Info@StoweCenter.org.

The term human trafficking conjures up images of young girls beaten and abused in faraway places, like Eastern Europe, Asia, or Africa. Actually, human trafficking happens locally in cities and towns throughout the United States, including here in Connecticut.

Next up in theSalon series is Bullied No More on Nov. 29 at 5 pm with Catie Talarski, co-producer of the public radio special BULLIED: Teen Stories from Generation PRX; Council Brandon, a teen featured in the radio program, and activist and Student Stowe Prize winner Tess Domb Sadof.
