Lancaster County Child Sexual Exploitation Community Event

Child sex trafficking & exploitation are issues we face right here in our own community. As a system, we recognize the challenges presented by this complex problem. Attend the community kickoff event to join us in strengthening our response to Child Sexual Exploitation. This is a unique opportunity to learn more about these challenges as they apply to our community and how we can continue to put the needs of the victims first. It will take a coordinated community response in order to take on this challenge. We need your help!
