EastLake Church is partnering with the Bilateral Safety Corridor Coalition (BSCC) to host a community forum on human trafficking on Thursday, June 28 at 6 p.m.
The event is open to parents, students, and concerned members of the community and will feature representatives from law enforcement, immigration, and agencies that support the victims of trafficking.
"Human trafficking is modern slavery, and it's our responsibility to make every effort to keep children from entering into the trafficking pipeline as well as to provide support and encouragement to those who have been rescued from traffickers," said Mike Meeks, lead pastor of EastLake Church. "That's why we've partnered with the Bilateral Safety Corridor Coalition to help bring this injustice to a stop."
Since 1997, the Bilateral Safety Corridor Coalition has coordinated services and advocate on behalf of trafficking victims. Today, the coalition encompasses over 150 government and non-governmental agencies in the United States and Latin America who are dedicated to combating trafficking and empowering victims so that they may return to families, friends, and daily life.
EastLake Church is located at 990 Lane Avenue, Chula Vista, CA, 91914. For further information on the church, visit the church's website at eastlakechurch.com.
