Elevate: Understanding Human Trafficking
19 March @ 6:30 pm - 9:00 pm
Our first YYC Impact Event is Elevate: Understanding Human Trafficking.
Human trafficking is a very real and prevalent issue in Calgary, our province and within Canada. Elevate: Understanding Human Trafficking will be a night of education, discussion, and learning steps we can take to make a difference in the fight against human trafficking.
The evening will feature a powerful panel discussion followed by a Q&A. Elevate impact events are safe spaces to learn and connect while making a difference.
Proceeds from the event are going to Action Coalition on Human Trafficking (ACT) Alberta, a non-profit organization that leads activities related to education, advocacy collaboration and victim assistance.
- Jessica Brandon, Manager of Training & Education, ACT Alberta
- Corporal Kim Bradfield, Corporal with the KARE Counter Exploitation Unit, RCMP
