According to EndSlaveryTN.org, there are 94 children trafficked in Tennessee every month. Human rights advocates agree this must end, but it starts with educating the general population that it is happening.
To that end, the Church of Scientology will host the community for a panel discussion on this topic on September 21st which is also the International Day of Peace. According to internationaldayofpeace.org, the United Nations General Assembly declared September 21 as a day devoted to strengthening the ideals of peace, both within and among all nations and peoples.
Organizations coming together for this event include Free for Life International, the Nashville Peacemakers, Tennesseans for Alternatives to the Death Penalty, and more.
The panel discussion will center around the theme “Exposing the Hidden World of Human Trafficking.” It will bring together people that work day in and day out on eradicating the problem, including panelists Clemmie Greenlee, Founder of the Nashville Peacemakers; Melody Fowler-Green, Director of the Metro Human Relations Commission; Assistant District Attorney Tammy Meade; Allasone Lita G., CEO and Founder of All Is One; and Gabrielle Thompson, Executive Director of Free for Life International.
Rev. Brian Fesler, pastor of the Church of Scientology says, “The purpose of this discussion is to educate people about the issue in the context of human rights. No man, woman or child should ever have to endure such a situation. We want to make people aware, show what they can do to help end this problem.”
