Cultural Conversations, the popular women’s discussion group, will conclude its latest season with an informative exploration of human trafficking. The program will feature Police Captain Marcia Harnden, who will explain what human trafficking is and what it looks like in our community.
The season finale will take place from 1-3 p.m. on June 6 at the Crossroads Community Center, 16000 NE 10th St.
The June program seeks to increase community awareness and share the stories about how individuals and organizations are working to help men and women from being victims of human trafficking. Additional storytellers include:
• Elaine Adams, program director of the Escape to Peace Center in downtown Bellevue, who will share her story of survival and overcoming personal obstacles to help others.
• Lila Ghising, founder and president of Friends of Women’s Protection Center Nepal, who will provide a global perspective and discuss her story of escape and resilience.
Sponsored by the city of Bellevue, Cultural Conversations is a diverse women’s group that gathers regularly to enhance their knowledge and understanding of different practices and world views in a nurturing and safe environment. Women of all ages, faiths and cultures are welcome to attend.
To fully participate in the sharing, attendees are encouraged to make arrangements for child care. RSVP to Barb Tuininga, firstname.lastname@example.org or 425-452-2735.
