Stephen Ferraro, Co-Director of Not for Sale CT, and Officer Deborah Scates, Hartford Police Department, will speak on the difficult but important topic of Human Trafficking and Modern Day Slavery Around the World and in Connecticut at the Brotherhood Breakfast, Sunday, April 29, 9:30am. Commercial sex trafficking proliferates across continents, in casinos, on streets…and right here in Connecticut. The speakers will discuss modern day slavery and labor trafficking, how it is part of our daily lives, and what we can do about it. Officer Scates was recognized for her work here in Hartford, testing a major Federal law, the Trafficking Victims Protection Act. The program is open to the public. Congregation Beth Israel is located on 701 Farmington Ave., West Hartford. A $5 donation for breakfast is suggested.  For more information, visit www.cbict.org, or contact bethisrael@cbict.org, 860-233-8215.
