Fourth Annual Savannah Traffic Jam To Be Held

The Savannah Interagency Diversity Council (SIDC) has opened registration for the fourth annual Savannah Traffick Jam taking place on Saturday, January 26 at Savannah State University. With the theme “Solving Problems Through Partnerships” Savannah Traffick Jam 2019 will again bring together a diverse and action-minded group of advocates committed to working together to stop Human Trafficking both in Savannah, and beyond.

Two tracks of registration are available, providing breakouts specific to Law Enforcement Officers as well as a general slate of presentations open to the public. This year’s program combines national speakers with local panels to give attendees a clearer understanding of the problem of Human Trafficking nationally, and what’s happening in our area to help stop it. Featured speakers and topics include:

“The Impact of Opioids on Human Trafficking – the Office of Victims of Crime

“Moving against Human Trafficking” – The Transportation Industry including TSA, Amtrak, Truckers Against Traffcking, GA State Patrol, and Air Ambassadors

“End Child Prostitution and Trafficking” – ECPAT – USA Executive Director Carol Smolenski “The Hospitality Industry Fighting Human Trafficking” – Asian American Hotel Owners Association (AAHOA) President Chip Rogers

Additional speakers and panel members include GaDOE, SWAT, GA Cares, Shared Hope International, Park Place, HSI, FBI, and the Federal Law Enforcement Training Center.

The Savannah Traffick Jam is free and open to the public. Check in begins at 8 a.m. the morning of January 26 at Savannah State University in the Student Union Center.

The Savannah Traffick Jam is sponsored by the SIDC, Savannah Interagency Diversity Council. Like Traffick Jam, the SIDC is made up of a range of law enforcement, business, and government agencies, social services, educators, and advocates with the shared purpose of celebrating the diversity in our community. By bringing diverse perspectives together for conversation and collaboration, positive change can occur. The Savannah Traffick Jam is a natural initiative of that action-oriented mindset, and we welcome you to join us to continue “Solving Problems Through Partnerships…”
