Prevention of human trafficking will be the focus of a presentation at Kansas Wesleyan University Nov. 4.

KWU will host a presentation on human trafficking prevention by nationally known speaker Brook Bello at 6 p.m. Nov. 4 in Sams Chapel. The event is open to the public at no charge. In accordance with KWU’s COVID-19 policy, face coverings are required indoors regardless of vaccination status.

“Human trafficking is one of the great evils of our time,” said Allen Smith, KWU’s director of diversity and student success, who helped organize the event. “It can strike across all socioeconomic boundaries in a variety of ways and knows no limitations. We are pleased to host Dr. Bello for this seminar on educating our community regarding this scourge.”

Bello is the founding CEO of More Too Life, a non-profit, human trafficking reduction and survivor empowerment organization. She has earned a litany of recognitions and distinctions, including a Lifetime Achievement Award from the Obama White House, a Florida Advocate of the Year award and a Google Next-Gen Policy Leader.
