Conference Opportunity

Find Your Voice...Break the Chain

Women of Vision in South Puget Sound announces that registration is now open for a very important conference on issues of Human Trafficking and Modern Day Slavery. This is a day-long conference including key notepresentations, breakout sessions, and information booths. The goal of the conference is to learn about these critical issues, both in our local area and internationally, and find out what we can do to make a difference. WV partner church Chapel Hill Presbyterian in Gig Harbor has generously offered their facility and support for the planning and execution of the conference. This conference is open to all adults, college & senior high students, both men and women. Church groups with a focus on countries significantly impacted by these issues will want to attend. College groups motivated to advocate in these areas will want to take part. Groups investing in microfinance will find these discussions very meaningful, as evidence of how important their commitment is to microfinance projects. Please pray and believe with us that HUNDREDS will attend!
