The National Cherry Festival in collaboration with The Traverse City Film Festival, Traverse City Tourism, and Up North Pride will be presenting Celebration Without Exploitation: Human Trafficking Awareness Seminar for Festival and Event Volunteers. The event will take place on Monday, February 25th from 5:30 PM to 7:30 PM at the State Theatre. Pop, water, and popcorn will be provided. This free event will be open to the public and will be seated first come, first served.
The group welcomes Stephanie Krieger, a Public Health & Public Safety Specialist, who educates agencies in both the Rescue and Restoration of Human Trafficked Victims. As an engagement specialist, Krieger helps to bridge the gaps of communication in and between agencies, resulting in an enhanced and timely response. Krieger will take the tour-hour event to educate the audience on human trafficking statistics, how to identify human trafficking, and why large events play such a key role.
