In Our Own Backyard: Human Trafficking Symposium & Resource Fair was held on Saturday, January 28, 2023, by the Dade County Alumnae Chapter of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc. in partnership with Florida Memorial University and the Sigma Alpha Chapter Of Omega Psi Fraternity, Inc. This event hosted over 250 community members for an afternoon of prevention training by Kristi House, intervention updates, personal testimonies and over 18 community resources. A panel of some of Miami-Dade County's human trafficking experts and task force officers were also present to bring knowledge and engage in meaningful conversations. Dr. Shanika Ampah-Haynes, our keynote speaker, provided a first hand account of human trafficking and her survivor's story.  It was indeed an afternoon of community, education, and empowerment.

If you suspect human trafficking please call 911. The National Human Trafficking Hotline is available 24/7 at  1-888-373-7888 to take reports of potential human trafficking as well.
