Volunteer Newsletter

September 9, 2019

VOLUNTEER SPOTLIGHT
                                                           
For this issue of our bi-weekly newsletter, rather than spotlighting particular volunteers, we are instead spotlighting a very serious situation that needs our attention.

Human trafficking is happening right here in Mississippi. It's happening in our communities. And it's happening to people we know. The state of Mississippi has five task forces in place - one of which is in Northeast Mississippi (Tupelo) - doing their best to investigate and bring a halt to these horrific crimes.

To bring awareness to the reality of drug trafficking, Mississippians Against Human Trafficking is asking everyone to participate in a social media campaign on October 28 (see details below). 

If you have information that law enforcement needs to know about, please contact the national hotline:
1-888-373-7888. 

         You are also encouraged to follow them on facebook, where you can view a video and find out valuable information about human trafficking.
