Set Free Movement To Host Human Trafficking Education Session

The Set Free Movement, a nonprofit group with a local chapter devoted to ending human trafficking, will host a community education event this Saturday from 9:00 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. at the Globe Theatre.

Annie Schomaker with Set Free told us about the organization and what’s in store this Saturday.

“We have over 30 groups across the country as well as internationally, and we are working to fight human trafficking,” Schomaker said. “Here in Bond County we have been working for the past three years on raising awareness on this issue and developing protocol on prevention efforts, rescue efforts, and restoration efforts.

“This Saturday we are going to have a free training for the community, and beyond, to really look in-depth on what human trafficking is and we want to dive into how the community can respond. What could an individual do, what could a church do, an organization or business do in response to this issue?”

Everyone is invited to attend Saturday. Registration will begin at 8:30 a.m.

Schomaker will be our guest to talk more about the efforts of the Set Free Movement on an upcoming edition of WGEL’s Public Affairs Program.
