April 26-28, 2012. Mark the dates, register now, and join the work of The Romero Center / Centro Romero in advocating for justice for some of the most vulnerable members of our community. With one of the busiest border crossings in the country, San Diego is home to a growing network of people who betray the trust of people looking for better lives and enslave young people in lives of forced prostitution and the sex trade.
Carlos Correa, the director of Centro Romero, has designed a robust program that will have participants meeting together with religious and community leaders, government officials, law enforcement officers and justice practitioners, including a trip across the border into Tijuana to meet with officials and Centro Romero partners.
In an effort to include the voices of young adults in this process, there are scholarships and grants available through the conference. Just click here and download an application (English, Spanish and Samoan language applications are provided). This is an issue that young people around the world have been rallying around, and I’d love it if our conference was able to invest more into this work.
So click on some links and sign yourself up for this event! You’ll be glad you did.
