Junior League of Birmingham Hosts Attorney General Bill Schuette for discussion on Human Trafficking Commission Report

BIRMINGHAM, MI, December 2, 2013 — Attorney General Bill Schuette will arrive at Baldwin Public Library in Birmingham on December 11, 2013 at 6:30pm to present findings on his human trafficking commission report to the Junior League of Birmingham, Michigan, Inc.

"I am looking forward to addressing how Michigan can embrace a victim-centered approach to combating human trafficking in our state," said Schuette.  "Events like the Junior League's forum are essential to raising public awareness of modern day slavery."

The Junior League of Birmingham is working to bring awareness that human trafficking is happening in our community and our neighborhoods. Education about this heinous crime affecting children, women, and men is just the first step. “If we all work together, we can make a difference. We are honored to host the town hall meeting for Attorney General Bill Schuette,” said Stephanie Smith, President, Junior League of Birmingham.

The Junior Leagues of Michigan have focused on the issue of Human Trafficking for more than five years. All the Leagues have worked tirelessly to bring this issue to the forefront in the public view. “The attorney general has done a fantastic job with gathering the experts in our community to evaluate how we can combat this issue. I'm proud to say that Junior League members were a part of that task force,” said Emily Todebush, Government Affairs Chairwoman, Junior League of Birmingham.

The Leagues have a real opportunity to take advantage of the task force to educate the community. That's how we begin to work on the issue in our communities. “The Junior League of Birmingham is committed to educating the public, and having open discussions on how we can all work together to fight this epidemic,” said Todebush.
