Human Trafficking Awareness Event

August 22, 2023 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm


Recent portrayals and depictions of the global issue human trafficking has sparked discussion across the country.  Eliminating human trafficking is a challenge that requires support from all corners of the world, however human trafficking is much closer to home than you may think, and can look different from how it is portrayed in popular media.

Please join us for a Human Trafficking Awareness Event presented by the Bucks Coalition Against Trafficking (BCAT). The event will offer an overview presentation of human trafficking, key indicators of trafficking, how trafficking exists here in our community and Bucks County. The presentation will be moderated by Elyse Hoekstra, Organizer, Bucks Coalition Against Trafficking. It will be followed by an interactive Q&A session. Light refreshments will be provided.

Interactive Q&A Panel will feature:

Ali Pottebaum, Rapid Rehousing Coordinator, Haven House
Kristin McElroy, Deputy District Attorney, Bucks County Office of the District Attorney
Karen Kutzner, Trainer, Lakeside Institute/Co-Chair Bucks Coalition Against Trafficking
Jamie Pfister, Training Coordinator, NOVA
Jenna Spadaro, Human Trafficking Victim Advocate, NOVA
Officer Matthew Tyson, Bensalem Township Police Special Investigations Unit

We welcome everyone who wishes to join the movement.
