MONTH IN REVIEW: January 2020
To start off 2020, SDMFC is hitting the ground running! Check out what is happening below…
Monthly Convening: “Human Trafficking”
On Friday, January 24, SDMFC hosted its first Monthly Convening for 2020 at the Mission Valley Library and focused on the topic of “Human Trafficking.” We were privileged to the San Diego School of Creative and Performing Arts (SDSCPA) in attendance to showcase a few scenes from the student-led production called “TrappED,” exhibiting the slippery slope teens my face when dealing with the starts of human trafficking. Be on the lookout, a recorded production of “TrappED” will be available for sharing among the public. Once released SDMFC will add the link in this post! Additionally the January convening was joined by four subject matter experts fighting against human trafficking:
- Brenda M. Wells, i-5 Freedom Network (email@example.com)
- Daniel Dierdoff, San Diego Police Department (firstname.lastname@example.org)
- Fanny Yu, San Diego County Deputy District Attorney (Fanny.Yu@sdcda.org)
- Rachel Devine, GenerateHope (email@example.com)
