From page B3 | April 23, 2014 |

Women in the community are invited to participate in the Courage Worldwide Conference on human trafficking on Saturday, May 3, at the Pollock Pines Community Church, 6361 Pony Express Trail, Pollock Pines. The conference is from 8:30 a.m.-3 p.m. with a continental breakfast and lunch provided.

Founder and CEO, Jenny Williamson and her daughter Liz Williamson (courageous survivor and adopted daughter of Jenny) will address the very current problem of sex trafficking and how their ministry seeks to rescue those who are victimized and how to partner with them to help.

Due to her efforts, expertise and leadership across the nation, Williamson was awarded the FBI Director’s 2010 Leadership Award, the 2011 Community Spirit Award by Sacramento’s District Attorney Jan Scully and the 2012 William Jessup University’s prestigious Community Impact Award.

Jenny was also invited to be part of the California Attorney General’s Working Group on human trafficking as well as Shared Hope International’s Practitioners Working Group for its National Colloquium in Washington, D.C. She is also a member of Abolition International Shelter Association’s advisory board.

Courage Worldwide is building homes around the world for children rescued out of sex trafficking. It is its passion and vision to build Courage Houses in every city that needs one so rescued children will have a safe place to call home, in an effort to eradicate sex trafficking completely.

Mary Schwind will also be celebrating Raggedy Ann and Andy’s 99th birthday with a charming display and sharing the history of the dolls and how they were created to bring love and joy to those for whom they were created.

Tickets must be purchased in advance. Cost of the event is $15.

For more information or for tickets call the church office at 530-644-2133 or Linda Buchanan at 530-409-4322 or go on the Web at pollockchurch.com.
