The National Advocacy Center of the Sisters of the Good Shepherd (NAC) invites you to its VIRTUAL 2021 Shine the Light Human Trafficking Conference: Root Causes and Intersections on Human Trafficking.

The conference, which is free of charge, will be held over two afternoons, March 8 (12 noon to 3:00 pm EST), and March 9 (12 noon to 1:30 pm EST). We also are organizing a Call-to-Action Day on Trafficking for March 9.

Building on the success of our previous in-person Human Trafficking Conferences in 2018 and 2019, this year’s participants will hear from survivors, service providers and other experts. An additional advocacy panel will share easy and ongoing actions that can be taken to combat trafficking.

In the spirit of bi-partisanship, we welcome our Congressional Honorary Co-chairs, Rep. Ann Wagner (R-MO-02) and Rep. Jim McGovern (D-MA-02).

Day 1: will feature an overview of human trafficking that speaks to the various root causes. Panel presentations on both sex and labor trafficking with domestic and international components will follow.
Day 2: will focus on advocacy campaigns and how all of us can make a difference. Additional details are available on our Conference webpage.

*Dates of Conference: Monday, March 8, 12:00 – 3:00 pm EST & Tuesday, March 9, 12:00 – 1:30 pm EST. *Advance registration is required. *There is no fee for the conference.
