Sex Trafficking of Local Girls

I would like to send you a special invitation to come to a Town Hall forum about the sex trafficking of local girls on Thursday, January 20 at 7 p.m. This is not an issue that we like to think or talk about, but it is one that we must face openly together as a community.

The first step is to get informed. This event is a unique opportunity to hear from both national and local experts. Deborah Richardson, who has led campaigns to stop child prostitution first in Atlanta and now nation-wide, will start the conversation.  She will be joined by local leaders in this field, including the researcher who shed light on the issue in our community in a groundbreaking 2008 report. Other panelists include representatives from the Seattle Police Department and the King County Prosecuting Attorney’s Office, as well as the manager of The Bridge, our state’s only residential recovery program designed specifically to serve these children.

The forum is presented by the Women’s Funding Alliance in collaboration with the Seattle City Council, the Seattle Human Services Department, YouthCare and the Women’s Funding Network. Tickets cost $5 and all proceeds will go to The Bridge. Full event details and tickets are available at

If you can't make it in person, the event will also be available for viewing on the Seattle Channel's Web site afterward.

Moderator C.R. Douglas, Seattle Channel
Deborah Richardson, Women’s Funding Network

I hope that you will be able to join us. Please call my office at 206-684-8806 if you have any questions.
