HASTINGS (SNR) – A presentation, “Stop Human Trafficking,” will be held Thursday, May 3 from 7 to 8:30 p.m. at St. Michael’s Theisen Hall, 715 Creighton Ave., Hastings.
The event is sponsored by the Altar Society of St. Michael Parish in Hastings and Catholic Daughters Court William McDonald #1009.
The main speaker will be Sister Margaret Nacke, CSJ, of the U.S. Catholic Sisters Against Human Trafficking. All are welcome to attend. Free-will offerings will be accepted.
The event aims to educate the community on how to help stop human trafficking.
Sister Margaret will show a short DVD on human trafficking and offer information about concerns across the country, and particularly along the I-80 corridor.
A recent workshop on trafficking in York reported on human trafficking in Nebraska, including pregnancies occurring within human slavery, leading to forced abortions or children being raised in the trafficking industry.
Sister Margaret will also speak to social workers at Mary Lanning Hospital May 3.
