Soroptimist International of Fidalgo Island is proud to be one of the founders of Washington Engage Coalition Against Trafficking in Skagit County; for the purpose of organizing and empowering our communities to take action to prevent sex and labor trafficking. Human trafficking is ranked the second most lucrative crime in the world and 100-300 thousand children are currently estimated to be sexually trafficked in the United States alone. In this form of modern day slavery, victims are subjected to force, fraud or coercion for the purpose of sexual exploitation or forced labor. Their average age is thirteen.
Join SI Fidalgo Island and Washington Engage Coalition Against Trafficking in Skagit County at a Stop Human Trafficking Rally to be held January 11th at noon simultaneously at the corner of 12th & Commercial (Safeway) in Anacortes and at the Courthouse in Mount Vernon.
