Courtney's House brown bag event
On December 30, 2011, President Obama proclaimed January 2012 as National Slavery and Human Trafficking Prevention Month:1
“Human trafficking endangers the lives of millions of people around the world, and it is a crime that knows no borders. Trafficking networks operate both domestically and transnationally, and although abuses disproportionally affect women and girls, the victims of this ongoing global tragedy are men, women, and children of all ages.”1
To commemorate this month, on Wednesday, February 1, 2011 the APA Women’s Programs Office (WPO), Graduate & Postgraduate Education & Training Office, and Neighborhood Activities for Volunteer Activities (NOVA) Committee hosted a brown bag event for APA staff featuring Tina Frundt, Founder and Director of Courtney’s House. Courtney’s House is an organization committed to providing a safe space and loving environment for domestic sex trafficked girls and boys between the ages of 12 and 18 years.
