The Shepherd Project Speaker Series: Preventing and Responding to Child Abuse

June 7 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

84% of trafficked women and girls are survivors of childhood sexual abuse1.

1 in every 10 children will experience abuse by the time they are 182.

Through years of research and experience, The Samaritan Women has seen a significant connection between child abuse and sex trafficking. In order to engage in sex trafficking prevention, we need to engage in child abuse prevention.

Join The Samaritan Women for training to learn how to recognize, respond, and prevent child abuse. Expert Speaker, Victor Vieth from Zero Abuse Project will be providing monthly virtual trainings to equip participants with knowledge on child abuse and resources to bring back to their church and community. Sign up today to learn how to protect the vulnerable and create safe environments where healing help is offered.

    Date: June 7th
    Time: 6pm – 8pm (ET)
    Location: Zoom Webinar
    Cost: $75 per church
    Registration fee covers the cost for your entire group
