Human Trafficking Prevention Event to Be Held in McLean

Woman’s Club of McLean, Safe Community Coalition and New Dominion Women’s Club will commemorate National Human Trafficking Prevention Month with a panel presentation featuring Just Ask Prevention Project.

Trafficking and exploitation of teens is appallingly prevalent and underreported in Fairfax County, the groups say. Help eradicate this scourge by learning what makes children vulnerable, how to identify the signs of a possible victim, and what to do if you suspect a teen is being exploited. Join a candid discussion on this local, national, and global issue on Tuesday, Jan. 29, 7–8:30 p.m. at McLean Presbyterian Church Fellowship Hall, 1020 Balls Hill Road, McLean. The event is free.

Just Ask is a 501(c)(3) based in McLean with a team of multidisciplinary experts who bring an unmatched level of knowledge to fight human trafficking and exploitation.
