Happy Friday ICTC,

The next Quarterly Meeting will be held Thursday, December 5th, 2019 from 11:30am-1:30pm at Lurie Children's Hospital, 11th floor Conference Center. A light lunch will be served. Please note the updated meeting time!

We are excited to welcome Kara Thompson, from Selah Freedom as our featured speaker for December's ICTC Quarterly Meeting! Selah Freedom is a national organization with the mission to end sex trafficking and bring freedom to the exploited. Through their CSEC Advocacy Training, youth-interveners will leave with a greater understanding of the realities of the commercial sexual exploitation of children (CSEC), its root causes, how to identify victims, and how to take action. Kara Thompson, LSW, currently serves as the Midwest Prevention Coordinator with Selah Freedom.
