By Chris Jones/The Oshawa Express

Human trafficking is an issue which Durham has been dealing with firsthand, which is why Victim Services is seeking to educate the public.

Victim Services of Durham Region is partnering with Durham Regional Police Services to educate parents on human trafficking, as well as prevention.

On Tuesday, June 4, from 6 to 8 p.m. residents are invited to the Ajax Community Centre at 75 Centennial Road, to learn more about human trafficking.

The event, which is called Human Trafficking: Parents and Prevention, invites all caregivers to gain knowledge on human trafficking in Durham.

They will learn practical tips on how to prevent youth from being victimized, and will hear from both a parent and a survivor who have lived through the experience of human trafficking.

The presenters will teach about identifying red flags and how to intervene effectively.
