Advocacy Book Discussion
Time: 9:00 am to 11:00 am at the JLS Office
Interested in learning more about human trafficking and
"the life" that many survivors have experienced? Join us Saturday,
April 27th for a book discussion with Lacie Morrison. Lacie is a leader and
founding member on the Board of Directors for Seattle Against Slavery and owns
Lacie Morrison Counseling. She worked for 2 years in the Philippines with women
who were commercially sexually exploited. She has generously agreed to lead a
discussion with JLS members of the book, Girls Like Us: Fighting For a World
Where Girls Are Not For Sale, by Rachel Lloyd.
Lloyd's memoir provides a poignant look into the real lives
of herself and other young girls who have been wrapped up in the life of sexual
exploitation. “Girls Like Us is a powerful and eloquent recounting of the lives
of children and young women caught up in the ravages of sexual exploitation….[It]
offers valuable insights into understanding the complex emotional and economic
factors that contribute to the exploitation of children and youth.” (Richard J.
Estes, Professor of Social Work, University of Pennsylvania )
