PETERSBURG — A workshop for salon owners, business professionals and the community to gain knowledge and awareness of human trafficking will be held Feb. 15 at St. Petersburg College Midtown campus.
Human trafficking is the trade of humans for the purpose of forced labor, sexual slavery or commercial sexual exploitation for the trafficker or others. Owners and employees of hair salons, barbershops, massage parlors, nail salons as well as any other interested business professionals are urged to attend.
It is imperative that the salons have this information and are in compliance with Florida Statute 787.29 and County Ordinance, which requires them to display public awareness signage to inform the public about human trafficking and resources for assistance.
This workshop will feature professional speakers who are involved in the field of human trafficking, survivor stories, as well information of the human trafficking currently going on in the Tampa Bay area.
