[Savannah, GA]- Savannah Interagency Diversity Council (SIDC) will be partnering with Armstrong State University to host “Savannah Traffick Jam” for January’s National Human Trafficking Awareness Month. The Forum will start at 10:00 AM on Saturday, January 16, 2016 at the Armstrong Center, located at 13040 Abercorn Street, Savannah, Georgia.
SIDC is a local non-profit 501(c)(3) organization comprised of over forty representatives from federal, state and local organizations. Its goal is to promote the value of diversity in Savannah and support efforts to increase inclusion. SIDC further strives to promote the acceptance and understanding of diverse values, beliefs, interests, experiences, similarities, intellectual and cultural initiatives; provide opportunities within the university system for students to express their views and offer suggestions and solutions to encourage strong relationships among different cultures; increase awareness of diversity in the local community and promote a better understanding of cultures, races, gender and individuals with disabilities.
Human Trafficking is a multi-dimensional crime that may involve forced sex acts, labor exploitation, violence, fraud and immigration schemes. This forum will educate the community about the different forms of human trafficking and teach people how to recognize signs of trafficking to help save victims. Available victim resources, offered by the government and community organizations, will also be highlighted.
This event is free for the general public. If you have any questions please contact Bill Gettis at William.E.Gettis@usdoj.gov or (912) 398-1343.
