The Zonta Club of Northwest Wayne County, USA, hosted a presentation on human trafficking education and awareness on 2 December. The club partnered with their local library for the virtual presentation, which was attended by 40 people.
Dr. Laura Starzynski, one of the club’s newest members, led the presentation. She is a senior lecturer in the Department of Criminology and Criminal Justice at Wayne State University and a member of the Southeast Michigan Human Trafficking Taskforce, which is dedicated to spreading education and awareness about human trafficking in our communities.
Information provided during the lecture gave participants an understanding of local resources for victims, how to identify situations of human trafficking, and helped reduce misinformation that commonly surrounds this topic.
