Join us for our upcoming Living in the Tension Gathering on Monday, August 18th, where we will be discussing sex trafficking.
We have a special guest presenter, Brenna Cyr, who will be discussing LGBTQ sex trafficking in the city of Chicago. Sex trafficking is a worldwide issue with over 30 million slaves, 60,000 of whom live in the US. Brenna is one of Illinois’ most knowledgeable resources on this topic. She studied at the University of Wisconsin and then was a case manager for Stop-It, an NGO that works with any and all victims/survivors of human trafficking. She spearheaded the Cook County human trafficking task force, specifically leading the subcommittee on LGBTQ sex trafficking. We will be meeting in Room 124 on 5255 N Ashland Ave. at 7pm.
We meet for dinner beforehand at Lady Gregory’s on 5260 N Clark Street at 5:15pm for anyone that would like to join us.
