#ShapingCLT | Trafficked

  • Levine Museum of the New South 200 E. 7th Street Charlotte, NC 28202 (map)

Defined as the trade in humans, most commonly for the purpose of sexual slavery or forced labor, human/sex trafficking is a major threat in North Carolina. At one time, Charlotte was the number one city for trafficking but the problem has not done away. Join us as we explore the issue and tackle solutions via transparent discourse and a variety of activities.

Participants include Amanda Hinnant, Immigration Attorney for the Legal Aid Society of North Carolina, Alexa Nagy, Community Outreach and Development Coordinator of Lily Pad Haven, and Dr. Pat Krikorian, Executive Director of Lily Pad Haven.

A do-it-yourself social change toolkit, #ShapingCLT is a solutions-oriented variety show aimed at vanquishing apathy. The examination of Charlotte’s future will move participants beyond conversation towards civic action. This guest-curated program will bring together thought leaders in our community representing a variety of perspectives on trending issues. Presented by Bank of America.

All programs are hosted by Davita Galloway of Dupp&Swat. Each program is $10 for non-members (25% discount for members) and includes program, light bites, and a cash bar. Space is limited, reservations required. #ShapingCLT takes place one Wednesday per month from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. at Levine Museum of the New South.
