Thursday September 17, 2015, 12:00 Noon,
The Anna Louise Inn

 Human trafficking is often portrayed as an international or national issue, but its end results impact communities such as Cincinnati. The first Community Issues Forum of the 2015-2016 series will focus on human trafficking and the Off the Streets Program, a program run by the Anna Louise Inn to help women escape from prostitution in order to forge new lives. Speakers at the Forum will be Mary Carol Melton, Executive Vice President of the Anna Louise Inn, and the Rev. Noel Julnes Dehner, who is producing a documentary on human trafficking. The Forum will also include a tour of the new Anna Louise Inn. This luncheon presentation takes place at 12:00 noon, Thursday September 17th, the Anna Louise Inn, 2401 Reading Road. Since this Forum will not take place at the Cathedral reservations will be required because of space limitations. Call Bill Woods or Ed Burdell at (513) 381-4994. Finally, people concerned about this topic may also wish to hear the Rev. Becca Stevens of Thistle Farm, TN speak about her program for victims of human trafficking at Christ Church Cathedral, 10:00AM  Service, September 27th.
