Set Free Forum

Saturday, March 23rd the human trafficking research lab attended the Set Free Forum at a church I had never heard of before by the Decatur Airport. I used GPS to find the church but still missed some important turns that made Jasmine and I arrive later than expected. Sadly, I was also on call for the Growing Strong Sexual Assault Center 24-hour hotline so I had to make sure I had cellular reception at all times. This meant that I was not able to attend most of the important speakers and instead stayed in the lobby at the research lab table answering the few questions asked. I was underwhelmed by the number of attendees but really enjoyed the event. I enjoy being able to network with other community members who are aware of the importance of combatting human trafficking not only in the Decatur community but worldwide. I also was able to learn more about local religious organizations. I especially appreciated the petition Dr. Dean made up to fight against the construction of an ICE detention center in Dwight, Illinois.
