9th Annual
Human Trafficking Symposium

The Human Trafficking Task Force of Southern Colorado hosted its 9th annual symposium on Saturday, September 17th at Coronado High School in Colorado Springs. Our theme this year was Not on our Watch and our goal was to inform and educate youth and those who work with youth of the dangers of sex trafficking. Going forward the task force plans to promote human trafficking curriculum as mandatory classes in our local high schools. We had an array of speakers from law enforcement, district attorneys office, leaders from iEmpathize, the Governors council on human trafficking, and the Colorado Laboratory to combat Human Trafficking along with many dedicated concerned citizens. We were pleased to welcome our many exhibitors and vendors as well as an exhibit of poetry and art created by survivors of trafficking. It was a dynamic and energized day with approximately 200 in attendance.

We want to thank our many sponsors and volunteers, without their efforts none of this would have been possible.

Sincerely, Roger Patrizio Human Trafficking Task Force of Southern Colorado.
