AAUW sponsors human trafficking seminars

The American Association of University Women (AAUW) is sponsoring a day of seminars concerning Human Trafficking, Tuesday, Oct. 8., 10 a.m. at the Alva Middle School auditorium, 11 a.m. at the Alva High School auditorium  and 6:30 p.m. at the Northwestern Oklahoma State University Education Center, room 109.

Officer Michael Snowden, of the OBN’s (Oklahoma Bureau of Narcotics and Dangerous Drugs Control) Electronic Surveillance and Intelligence division, will be speaking.

“Human Trafficking is a terrible problem,” said Dr. Karen Linstrum, assistant professor of psychology and AAUW vice president of programs. “Part of the solution to prevention is educating young boys and girls about the issue, and focus on developing positive self-esteem because perpetrators are known to prey on young people with low self-esteem between ages of 12 and 16.”

This event is free and open to the public.

For more information please contact Linstrum at (580) 327-8148 or at kslinstrum@nwosu.edu.
