Community Event: Human Trafficking Awareness with keynote speaker Jasmine Grace

This event is an opportunity for our community to come together to learn

This event is an opportunity for our community to come together to learn and ask questions regarding human trafficking; indicators, statistics and resources. Speakers will include Jasmine Grace, law enforcement and local community resources.

Jasmine Grace is using her voice and story of hope to raise awareness for women who are currently enslaved in sex trafficking and sexually exploitative situations by speaking at schools, colleges, churches and conferences. Jasmine firmly believes that increased education and awareness of this issue can help prevent and abolish it. Jasmine has authored a book titled, The Diary of Jasmine Grace: Trafficked. Recovered. Redeemed. The book is based on her actual diary entries while being trafficked with present day reflections to show the difference in who she was, compared to who she is today. Books will be available for purchase at the event.

December 3rd from 6:30 pm – 8:30 pm

Health Department releases Preliminary Data from community health survey.

Every three to four years local health departments must conduct a community health assessment and develop a community health improvement plan with community partners. Preliminary data is being released from the community surveys completed in the summer of 2018 as well as from focus groups held with members of the community in the fall of 2018 and spring of 2019. A priority setting meeting was held in May 2019 and the committee responsible for selecting priorities and interventions for the community health assessment is diligently working to complete the health improvement plan.
