OSU Faculty Club:

Children Trafficked for Sex: How to Restore Hope

featuring Jane Tafel of Hagar International

Thursday, April 22nd, 11:30 AM – 1:00 PM at Junior Colleague Room 

Did you know that 1,000 US born children are trafficked in Ohio EVERY YEAR? Children suffer unspeakable abuse while enslaved by traffickers. A dramatic rescue brings them swiftly to safety, but the recovery process typically takes years. Through this presentation, learn why Hagar has been recognized as a ‘promising practice’ by the US Department of State.

Lunch info. Luncheon costs range from $6. $10 for all you can eat. Pay with cash or check only, no credit cards.  Get your lunch at the buffet.  Bring the white menu slip back in the room, pay FCFS who then pays the faculty club. (Sorry no brown bags permitted by the Faculty Club).

Featured Speaker: Jane Tafel is Executive Director of Hagar USA. Hagar has served in Cambodia since 1994 and has more recently expanded into Afghanistan and Vietnam . She is a graduate of Macalester College and the University of Wisconsin – Eau Claire. She speaks widely on the world-wide scourge of human trafficking and the work of Hagar International and is at Ohio State this week in conjunction with the campus-wide events around fighting human trafficking.

This will be a great opportunity to invite a colleague to hear about Human Trafficking and what can be done.  Space is limited. To make your reservation please RSVP today.(before April 16, Friday). There is a chance that we could move our luncheon upstairs to accommodate reservations. If we do this we will need to arrange a meal with a menu choice for one comprehensive price. We will let you know by April 19th if this is the case.  Make your reservations today by logging on to: http://www.fcfs-osu.org, then click on Reservations or reply to collins@ece.osu.edu

If you are new faculty here at OSU we have a Welcome gift for you! Please plan to join us and get your gift at the luncheon.
