What can be done about human trafficking in Colorado?

 At the salon on October 26thCaleb Stewart of the Rocky Mountain Immigrant Advocacy Network (RMIAN) will discuss the problem of human trafficking in Colorado as it relates to the immigration crisis.  Immigrants, escaping the violence of their Central American homes, can easily fall prey to human traffickers who promise them safe passage across the border.  Caleb will address both the scope of the problem and RMIAN’s efforts to help the victims.

 Caleb joined RMIAN’s Anti-Human Trafficking Project in March of 2018 after four plus years of providing civil legal services to survivors of human trafficking with Colorado Legal Services.  Prior to studying law (JD) and public administration (MPA with a certificate in nonprofit management) at the University of Washington in Seattle, he lived in Thailand for five years and traveled throughout South and Southeast Asia for another six months. While in Thailand, he taught in primary schools and coordinated community development projects with the Peace Corps and empowered local ethnic minority groups through sustainable agriculture, Montessori based education, and income generating handicraft projects as the Managing Director of the Khom Loy Development Foundation.

 Salon duc Tape, a public forum sponsored by the Fort Collins Community Action Network (FCCAN), meets on the 2nd and 4th Fridays of each month from 7:00 — 9:00 p.m. at the FoCo Café, which is located at 225 Maple Street.  Light refreshments will be available.  The formal program will begin at 7:10.  For more information, email FCCAN, or call us at 419-8944.
