The word “slavery” conjures images of antebellum slaves on cotton plantations or, more modernly, young girls from Eastern European countries who are lured away with promises of riches but are sold into bondage. In reality, modern day slavery- or human trafficking- is prevalent all over the United States. No community is immune from the threat of human trafficking. Stop by the library in March and April to check out our book display about this issue. Also, on April 19 from 6:00-8:00 PM, Sparrow Place will be hosting a documentary screening followed by presentations and a Q&A session with community anti-trafficking advocates. This event will be held at Grace Church Shrewsbury. You will be able to find out what human trafficking is, who the victims are, and how you can help keep your community safe. More information will be available during our book display.
