Area Roundups

AAUW Program Kicks Off 2014—Jan. 25

January 25 at 10 a.m. is the date to mark on your calendars. That is when the American Association of University Women of Reston and Herndon jointly with the National Council of Negro Women (NCNW) will offer a special presentation on human sex trafficking in our communities.

The presentation at the January AAUW meeting will feature guest speaker Detective William Woolf, a key member of the Northern Virginia Human Trafficking Task Force. Det. Woolf will discuss the growing problem of sex trafficking in the region as well as educating all who attend about the actions Fairfax County is taking to deal with a dangerous trend. The presentation is open to all who attend this annual joint meeting of AAUW of Reston-Herndon and the NCNW. A continental breakfast will be served.

That is 10 a.m. on Saturday, Jan. 25 at the offices of Cornerstones (formerly Reston Interfaith) in Suite 210 at 11150 Sunset Hills Road in Reston. It is the building next door to the Post Office, above the Cardinal Bank.
