1/26/15 – Miami, Florida – In observance of International Human Trafficking Awareness Month, Miami-Dade State Attorney Katherine Fernandez Rundle will host her Fourth Annual Community Forum on Tuesday, January 27, 2015, entitled “Combating the ˜Glamour` and Demand of Human Trafficking through Media, Education and Services”.
This year the forum is co-hosted by Pres. Donna Shalala at the University of Miami. This event brings community leaders, service providers and local, state and national law enforcement agencies together in our continued efforts to propose solutions in our mission to curb a crime that affects so many young and promising lives.
The forum is the brainchild of State Attorney Fernandez Rundle and is aimed at tackling instances of Human Trafficking in Miami-Dade County and South Florida. Through better awareness and legislation, it is the State Attorney`s hope that the victims of Human Trafficking can be more readily identified and the perpetrators prosecuted.
