National Women’s History Month March 2016

“Working to Form a More Perfect Union:
Honoring Women in Public Service
and Government”

The National Women’s History Month theme for 2016 honors women who have shaped America’s history and its future through their public service and government leadership. Although often overlooked and undervalued, collectively they have dramatically influenced our public policy and the building of viable institutions and organizations. From championing basic human rights to ensuring access and equal opportunity for all Americans, they have led the way in establishing a stronger and more democratic country.

Human Trafficking: Raising Awareness and …

Here is a flyer for a local panel on Human Trafficking that is free and open to the public.

Did you know Florida has the highest number of Human Trafficking victims in the United States?

Did you know Florida is one of the top 3 states as a destination state for Human Trafficking in the United States?

Approximately 20,000 people are trafficked into the United States each year. 80% of the Human Trafficking victims are women and children and 70% of the Human Trafficking victims are pornography, sex slaves, and commercial sex. Human Trafficking is a $32 billion dollar industry, second only to drug trafficking and by 2020, will be the number one crime worldwide.

Panel Sponsored By:

Gainesville Alumni Chapter of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc.
