5th Annual Human Trafficking Awareness & Prevention Summit & Walk
By: Florida National University
According to the United Nations, at any given time throughout the world, there are millions of people unwillingly involved in forced labor and the illicit sex trade. Although Human Trafficking is often portrayed as a broad national or international problem, the reality is that many of the victims of Human Trafficking reside within our communities.

About the Organizers
Dr. Jose Regueiro Foundation, Inc., a non-profit, 501C3, has partnered with Florida National University (FNU), and the FNU Powerhouse to be a force and a face in our multi-cultural communities against the practices of Human Trafficking, Domestic and Teen Dating Violence, and Missing Children. These despicable crimes prey on our children, youth and the public at large. Without a doubt, the damage and shattered lives of those affected and their families are immeasurable.
Our goal is to wipe out these public maladies, which are achievable through awareness education and through the use of interactive communication and intelligent strategies. Our Human-Rights Movement, can and will empower human beings with their right to exercise his/her fundamental right to live, study and work in safety and dignity. No one has the right to abuse or hurts anyone else or to rob us of our fundamental rights and peace.

We want to teach the children, youth, parents, educators, and the community at large how to combat, stay safe and clear of the path of danger and even death.
