UMW Speaker to Tackle Sex Slavery

September 24, 2014

During the past few years human trafficking around the world, here in the U.S. and the San Joaquin Valley has increased substantially.  It is estimated that some 27 million people are enslaved in some way around the world.
On Saturday, October 11, First UMC Turlock will welcome Debbie Johnson, the CEO and founder of Without Permission, a Modesto based non-profit organization working to free those  who are trapped in sexual slavery.  Without Permission seeks to prevent human trafficking through education, and by providing follow up care for survivors. Johnson’s presentation is part of the Turlock United Methodist Women’s (UMW) quarterly meeting.  Attendees will gather at 10 a.m. in the Social Hall, at 1660 Arbor Way, Turlock, CA.  There is no admission fee, both men and women are invited to attend, and childcare will be provided.
