Helping Heroes to discus human trafficking

Helping Heroes will host a BlogTalkRadio “Voices for Justice-Human Trafficking: the dark secret of America” show this coming Wednesday, September 2, 2009 from 3-4p.m. (Pacific Time). Join us as a guest panel takes listeners on a journey into the dark secret of America; Human Trafficking IS in our Backyard and its time we take a stand and have a Voice for Justice!

One of the speakers includes Bill Hillar: In 1988, while she was traveling with schoolmates in Southeast Asia, kidnappers pulled Bill Hillar's 17-year old daughter off a train and forced her into the sex industry. Despite an exhaustive, multi-country search, her father, a Special Forces Colonel, was unable to save his daughter from the fate that ultimately took her life. The recent movie “Taken,” with Liam Neeson is partially based on Bill Hillar’s personal story.

On Wednesday Dr. Hillar, now an adjunct professor at the Monterey Institute of International Studies, will discuss the international web of human trafficking and global approaches to combating this horrific practice.

Other speakers include: Transitions Global and Suzanne Stanford, Orange County Human Trafficking Coalition.
