On May 24, 2012 at 3:00 pm, the 2nd annual Trafficking In America Conference will open it’s doors to those who will travel across America to listen to 33 speakers and panel members from all corners of America present their knowledge and expertise about the modern day crime against humanity that is rocking our country to it’s core. Norma Ramos, Executive Director of “Coalition Against Trafficking in Women”, New York, keynote speaker for the Conference, will indeed set the tone for the conference. Our attendees want to become educated, to be inspired, to become awakened to the reality — and I believe in their heart of hearts, they want to be challenged to rise to a higher level of living.
As a result of the surveys from last year’s conference, there will be many changes and additions. The 2012 event offers breakout sessions on Friday the 25th and Saturday the 26th. Forum topics and speakers can be located by going to the CONFERENCE AGENDA Page on this site. To avoid overlapping information we will have 1 session titled Trafficking 101 for those who will be there and learning about human trafficking for the first time. Forum Topics are diverse. We made every attempt to cover the most important topics dealing with both supply and demand: survivor testimonies, legislation panel, law enforcement panel, For Men Only, For Women Only, For Pastors Only, and For Youth Only, are a few of the many forums offered.
Additionally, since the mission of Trafficking In America Task Force, the non-profit charitable organization formed to bring education and awareness about HT, is to also get to the root of what is driving this insidious and dehumanizing form of slavery, we are presenting forums that will take a look at some of the Goliaths that are fueling America’s thirst for more and more violence and sex: Hollywood’s Influence on our Culture, Pornography’s affect, Conscious Capitalism – a compassionate view of the work place, and more.
As an added highlight, we decided to end the TIA Conference with an awards banquet and give honor to whom honor is due. This will be a full banquet meal and a way to end with a positive uplifting note after taking in some extremely difficult information over the duration of the 3 day period.
We feel it is past time for taking a stand with a collective voice that will make changes in this country to stop our thirst for more and more vile behavior. REGISTER TODAY for the 2012 Trafficking In America Conference, May 24 – 26 in Nashville, TN. Come and learn with other passionate and concerned citizens what can be done to stop human trafficking in America.
