EPEC to lead community conversation on human trafficking

The Eastern Panhandle Empowerment Center (EPEC) will hold a public forum talk and training session about how to recognize and prevent human trafficking in Appalachia.

The session will be held on Saturday, September 30 at the Star Theatre in downtown Berkeley Springs from 4 to 6 p.m.

This community conversation is free and open to the public. Organizers suggest the subject material may best be suited to people over the age of 12.

A 40-minute community training will be led by Katie Spriggs, a local leader who is a steering committee member of the West Virginia Human Trafficking Task Force. The training will be followed by a one-hour panel discussion and then interactive time as participants create a plan to get involved in ending human trafficking in Appalachia.
