This special event is meant to bring awareness to residents of DuPage County regarding the exploitation occuring on all our under-age young girls, particularly of high school age.
This thought-provoking & engaging presentation will help you understand why and how vulnerable girls, even in safe communities & schools can fall victim to exploitation, ranging from abusive boyfriends to sex traffickers.
Elizabeth and other presenters will help sort through the state and national chatter on the underlying issues relating to the exploitation of our under-age girls. There will also be time time for questions and dialogue.
You'll especially appreciate the video's Elizabeth has to share.
