Thousands of people are sold into slavery everyday. Here's a way you can help. Become a Community Outreach Volunteer (COV). Purpose: To create & train a quality pool of COVs for the DC area. Future COV Goals: -"Canvas the city" campaign to educate & raise awareness of issue with targeted audiences. -Assist local non-profits & collaborating agencies with media/large events by serving as trained volunteers & educators. -Raise awareness of issue among person circle of influence. Format: - Discuss baseline TIP facts. -Learn key messages (from collaborating agencies) about human trafficking in the DC area. -Q&A. Who can become a COV? Any interested community members. Who is organizing this? The Washington DC Fight Human Trafficking Meetup Group is collaborating with The DC Task Force on Trafficking-In-Persons to train volunteers to effectively present the issue of trafficking-in-persons. Volunteers will come away with the skills, tools, and knolwedge to proactively raise community awareness. Visit us at our new website: www.fighthumantrafficking.org And go tell a neighbor or friend about the human trafficking. Silence, ignorance and apathy keep trafficking alive. We can stop it by raising our voices. Together, we create the solutions. For more information, see

    It was great, but I felt rushed. I know there was a 2 hour time limit, but there was way too much information for the amount of time we had...

    I think that we all need to be better acquianted to what goes on in our society by educating ourselves in places other than the meetings and bringing it together at the meetings to share and to help eachother with methods of educating others. I just started attending, so that is my opinion on what I saw. A lot of people have good intentions but have not found how to get out in the public and inform others. Really great small groups though. Intimate settings help people to get acquianted with others that have same passion as them to stop slavery. Great meeting!
