January is Human Trafficking Awareness Month and we wanted to let you know about several upcoming events:
1. The IHM Sisters will host a “Prayer Service for Human Trafficking Awareness” on Thursday, Jan. 10 from 3-3:30 p.m. in the IHM Motherhouse (Community Room. All are welcome. A flyer for the prayer service is attached.
2. Major events like the Detroit International Auto Show, with its influx of tourists, drive up the demand for prostitution. Fortunately, something is being done to reach out to trafficking victims locally and you can help. S.O.A.P. (Save Our Adolescents from Prostitution) distributes thousands of bars of free soap to local hotels and motels with the National Human Trafficking Hotline number and key identifying questions. Volunteers help package the soap and then deliver it to these establishments and provide them with a quick overview of what is happening to young girls in their hotels. Soroptimist of Monroe, Heroes against Child Sex Trafficking, and Family Counseling and Shelter Services will host a S.O.A.P. outreach at 10 a.m. on Saturday, Jan. 19 in Monroe at Family Counseling and Shelter Services ( 14930 LaPlaisance Rd., Suite 106 ).

3. For those of you in the Detroit area, a S.O.A.P. outreach will be held at Oakland Christian School (3075 Shimmons) in Auburn Hills on Saturday, Jan. 12. Click here for more information and to register.
