A Conversation about Sex Trafficking in OUR Communities
Human trafficking IS modern day slavery and it's happening right here in OUR Communities.
Human Sex Trafficking is big business for organized crime and for local pimps. Its one of those crimes that are hidden in plain sight - meaning, most of the victims go to school, church and live in stable homes. It`s hard to see they are even a victim. Research shows that the average age of recruitment into the commercial sex industry is 12-14 years old and that victims come from every race, ethnicity and socioeconomic background.
Come learn how youth and adults are being coerced into slavery, why they can't see their way out, and how we can keep our families safe.
Keynote Speaker: Theresa Flores - Best-selling author of “The Slave Across the Street,” survivor of sex trafficking and nationally known advocate. Flores shares how she was enslaved at the age of 15 while living with unsuspecting parents in an upper-middle-class suburb.
Local Perspective:
Brad Schimel Waukesha County Circuit Court Judge,
former Wisconsin Attorney General
Paul Farrow: Waukesha County Executive
Followed by a Panel of Experts
Suggested Age: 13+

(em)Power Luncheon
The Women’s Center is thrilled to present Terry Crews as the keynote speaker of our (em)Power Luncheon!

The (em)Power Luncheon honors the courageous voices of survivors, those who advocate for survivors, and those who speak out to affect change. Actor, athlete, and author Terry Crews is all three.

Many know Crews as an actor (most recently on “Brooklyn Nine-Nine” and the upcoming season of “America’s Got Talent: The Champions“, just to name a few out of an impressive catalog of films, commercials and television appearances), an artist, and a former NFL athlete. After sharing his story as a male #MeToo survivor in early 2018, and his subsequent testimony before the Senate Judiciary Committee in support of the Sexual Assault Survivor Bill of Rights, we now also know him as an activist.

Terry Crews has become an outspoken, honest and important male voice, included as one of Time magazine’s Silence Breakers who were named 2017 Person of the Year. Through his work, Crews is a tireless advocate for survivors and for legislation changes that will better protect survivors and hold perpetrators accountable.

Be sure to join us for our (em)Power Luncheon to hear Terry’s powerful message during Sexual Assault Awareness Month!
