City of Waukesha Chamber of Commerce - Event Information


Event Name:A Conversation about Sex Trafficking in OUR Communities
Description: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.
