Passion for Justice: Supporting Trafficking Victims in the Northwest Detention Center

  • St. Leo 710 South 13th Street Tacoma, WA, 98405 United States (map)

The Multifaith Coalition to Address Human Trafficking Through the Lens of Compassion is appealing to faith communities in the Tacoma-area to join us as we seek out justice-oriented legal professionals and concerned community-members to support detainees in the NW Detention Center that are victims of human trafficking.  Right here in Washington, victims of human trafficking are being kept in immigrant detention centers with little chance to access legal help.  These victims of human trafficking are eligible for a T-Visa, which will allow them to stay in the country legally, but without legal counsel; these visas are rarely obtained.  Come Wednesday, November 16th at 7pm to hear how the faith and legal community in Western Washington can come together to help these trafficking victims, and hear the story of one labor trafficking survivor and previous detainee at the NW Detention Center.  You can help with lifesaving services and take steps to reduce trafficking in our community.
