A reception for the show will be held from 6-8:30 p.m., Friday Dec. 9.

Victims of human trafficking are subjected to force, fraud, or coercion, for the purpose of sexual exploitation or forced labor. BSCC delivers comprehensive services to them through a network of partner agencies.
Services range from emergency response, to long-term case management including housing, mental health services, immigration relief, legal advocacy, interpretation and translation services, etc.

Also through this project, BSCC administers a 24-hour hotline and a Trafficking Emergency Response Team to assist victims in immediate need.

Soroptimist International of La Jolla was founded in 1947 and strives to improve the lives of women and girls locally and around the world.
