Whitworth discussion to examine sex trafficking

This evening Whitworth University will host a lecture and panel discussion on sex trafficking.

Speaker Smita Singh will discuss what happens once a girl is rescued from the sex trafficking industry and what care she needs physically and spiritually.

Singh leads a program that rehabilitates victims of sex trafficking in Mumbai, India and has used to work for International Justice Mission and now serves as a ministry partner of Partners International.

Following her lecture, she will join panelists in a discussion. Other panelists include David Hara, associate pastor of Northview Bible Church and Molly Hough, Whitworth student president and director of UNITE, a statewide student movement addressing sex trafficking and slavery. 

The event begins at 7 p.m. at Robinson Teaching Theatre (Weyerhaeuser Hall, Whitworth University).
