Dialogue on Human Trafficking in NH

On Monday 3/27/2017, The Freedom Café hosted 3 members of the NH Human Trafficking Collaborative Task Force to speak and field questions concerning human trafficking in NH. 

- Kate D'Adamo, Project Manager
- Rebecca Ayling, Senior Case Manager, Child and Family Services
- Mike Posanka, Supervisory Special Agent, Homeland Security Investigations

We opened the event by showing a short film created for the task force by AccessNashua, "A Conversation About Trafficking in the Granite State" available at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nK7_0...

Each of presenter introduced their role in the task force and work that is or needs to be done to address the issue of Human Trafficking in NH. Following these presentations at about 18 min. the dialogue turned to audience questions.

We are please to present a recording of the event. Our camera shut down prior to the completion of Q&A and final action points.

To bring the program to a close each presenter offered an important next step. To paraphrase their responses, here are 3 things you can do to help end human trafficking:

Mike - Be a good witness (ie notice the people around you and also understand the issue in the event that you serve on a jury) 

Kate - Be a good client / consumer (tip service industry workers, chose known ethically sourced products as often as possible)

Rebecca - Learn and re-share - leak information about trafficking to those around you

The Freedom Café would like to thank event sponsor Josh and Leah Bourdon for making this program possible.
