Rochester Regional Coalition Against Human Trafficking had an informational and educational table at MCC's “Enough Is Enough” Event. RRCAHT members Lauren VanCott and Mary Jo Colligan of Angels of Mercy provided a presentation on Human Trafficking. 


Our table provided visitors with an opportunity to speak with professionals in the field of human trafficking, get contact information of services for victims and survivors, and look at current books. The table had survivor stories and videos about trafficking, as well as information about current legislation. 

Information about CARE packs was available.
