Fighting Human Trafficking at the UofU

Our Impact ministry was asked to participate in a very special event held at the University of Utah.  One November 13th the Hinkley Institute hosted a discussion on the topic of fighting human trafficking here in Utah.  The panel consisted of three local speakers, specializing in prosecution, investigation and rehabilitation.  One of the student leaders of the Institute saw us tabling a few months back, advocating for Rapha House, an organization dear to our hearts that loves, rescues and heals those trafficked in Cambodia, Thailand and now Haiti.  This young lady asked us to table at this event and raise additional awareness (as an official student group) amongst those in attendance.  What an honor it was to join together with the “U” for such an important cause.
