January 23 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Speakers are 1) Donald Gault from “Men Breaking Free”, a groundbreaking Restorative Justice approach to working with men who have been arrested for attempting to purchase, or purchasing sex from another human being.  It engages men in an introspective, healing and learning process designed to break the cycle of sex trafficking and sexual exploitation. He will discuss what seems to lead men to participate in commercial sex and how the cycle can be broken. 2) Karen Gale is an FBI agent specializing in human trafficking.  She will discuss what seems to unknowingly lead girls, women- and boys- into the life of commercial sex and sexual exploitation and why it’s so difficult to escape the life they dread.  As a parent, teacher, employer, etc.  some of the signs which may indicate a person could be involved in trafficking.
