Members of Tri-Cities Soroptimist Against Trafficking (TCSAT) attended the SARC Shine the Light on Human Trafficking Walk Friday in honor of National Human Trafficking Awareness Day. TCSAT member Helene Schwartz talks with Washington State Senator Sharon Brown of the 8th Legislative District about trafficking issues as they complete the walk across the cable bridge connecting Kennewick with Pasco.
The TC-CAT has been an amazing catalyst for shining the light on trafficking in our area. As a collective force we are able to leverage resources to assist those in need.
The significance of having all of our agencies, NGO’s and faith based organizations that connect with trafficking victims at some point, in some way, working together to solve this issue can’t be underestimated. We have made significant strides in finding and reaching out to victims and survivors in our area by this collaborative approach—and I believe we will continue to make head way in helping eradicate this issue in our community.
