Landlord association hosting human trafficking presentation Thursday night
A nonprofit that helps combat human trafficking is set to share information on the issue at a meeting in Port Huron Thursday night.
The Port Huron Area Landlord Association is hosting Women At Risk at 7 p.m. Thursday at CityFlats’ ballroom, 800 Military St., in Port Huron and is inviting nonmembers and local residents, high school age and up, to attend.
Admission is free, but reservations are required. Doors open at 6 p.m.
According to a landlord association message this week, the organization was reaching out to housing specialists, such as property managers, landlords, real estate agents, and representatives of state-assisted housing programs, among others, about WAR’s presentation.
But Mike Bodeis, president of the association, said he expected more to follow up on reserving a spot to attend, adding, “There seems like there’s a lot of apathy out there” despite the persistence of the wider problem.
Bodeis said there were still plenty of seats available for the event. The presentation, he said, would be given WAR International founder Rebecca McDonald.
Women At Risk was expected to focus on the signs and red flags of human trafficking.
The landlord association got involved, Bodeis said, with Heidi Richards, who sits on its board of directors.
For reservations, email [email protected] or text Bodeis at (810) 650-1908.
