Sex Trafficking in the Midwest: What Can You Do About It?
Many people think that sex trafficking and sextortion does not take place in the midwest and/or in small communities. In this session, our guest, Division Chief Andrew (Butch) Diekemper of the City of Lenexa (Kansas) Fire Department and host, Opal Singleton, discuss several cases that are local to Lenexa and the surrounding areas.
Chief Diekemper attended the Los Angeles Fire Leadership Training Academy where he met Opal Singleton, who was conducting a course on combating human trafficking. Chief Diekemper was inspired to develop a two day training program for his community.
On November 13 and 14, 2018, Opal will be conducting four hour sessions in the morning for First Responders (Fire, Law Enforcement, Code Enforcement, Public Safety, Department of Housing, etc). And, in the afternoon, she will be conducting specialized four hour sessions for Social Workers and Counselors, where she will focus on the psychology of grooming, impact on victims of exploitation, understanding fantasy relationships, and a look at the “Prism of Shame.” (REGISTER HERE)
Finally, on the evening of Tuesday, November 13, 2018 at 6pm, Opal will be presenting at the Westside Family Church where the event will be open to the public (to anyone over the age of 13).
