(WQOW)-Wisconsin’s ELCA Human Trafficking Task Force is sponsoring a kick-off conference that brings attention to trafficked youth.

Pastor Diane House and Robbie Joern are members of the Wisconsin ELCA Human Trafficking Task Force, co-led by Cindy Crane, Director of the Lutheran Office of Public Policy in Wisconsin and Amy Hartman, Director of Cherish All Children, a national ELCA Lutheran ministry. The Task Force is sponsoring a  Kick-Off Conference at Christ Lutheran Church in Menomonie called “Safe Harbor Campaign” for trafficked youth in Wisconsin on Saturday, February 7th from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Anyone can come to ask questions and participate.

The cost of this program will cover the lunch. Money raised will benefit the Menomonie Police Department’s ‘soft room’. The ‘soft room’ would be a place to take younger individuals who might be a part of a police investigation, maybe even trafficked, who might find the typical police interrogation room intimidating.
