Human trafficking presentation on April 8

MARINETTE, Wis. –The Marinette-Menominee Communities That Care group has teamed with the Upper Peninsula Human Trafficking Task Force to bring human trafficking awareness to community members.

There will be a presentation at 6 p.m. Monday, April 8, at the UW Green Bay, Marinette Campus Cafeteria, 750 W. Bayshore St., Marinette.

Featured speaker will be Marlene Mottes, the UPHTTF group leader/administrator

“So often in the beautiful Upper Peninsula we hear it doesn’t happen here, but realistically it surely can and does,” Mottes said.

Mottes will present on warning signs to look for in both victims and traffickers, who can be a target of human trafficking, and both federal and Michigan laws regarding human trafficking.

There will be time for questions and answers after the presentation and a brief invite to any participants to join the UPHTTF.

The Communities that Care Coalition will be handing out small gift bags to all who attend, which will also include information on underage drinking prevention in conjunction with alcohol awareness month.

Parents, high school and college students as well as concerned community members are encouraged to attend. Everyone in attendance will also be entered in a gift card drawing. Free pizza will be served.
