Class will teach about stopping human trafficking

Rogue Valley Medical Center will sponsor a session from 3 to 5 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 8, on what local organizations should know about human trafficking.

Topics in the session will include issues specific to Oregon regarding human trafficking, identification of human trafficking victims and strategies in working with victims.

The main speaker will be Christopher Killmer, who is a Catholic Charities program coordinator for outreach and support to special immigrant populations, an assistance program for survivors of human trafficking. Killmer is a liaison to the Human Trafficking Task Force, has worked as the Anti-Trafficking Coalition coordinator and helped develop Oregonians Against Trafficking Humans campaign.

The seminar, which will be held in the Smullin Center, 2825 E. Barnett Road, Medford, is aimed at service providers in the areas of health care, mental health, social services, faith-based groups, educators and law enforcement.
