Two years ago, B-C Branch received an AAUW Grant to further knowledge about human trafficking in our area. The grant period is past, but the work continues. Recently branch members attended a Zonta Club event that raised money for the prevention of human trafficking. Nineteen organizations displayed informational tables and the group enjoyed an Emmy award-winning documentary by Sophia Kruse. Little Stones was filmed in Senegal, Kenya, Brazil, Germany, India and the USA and featured women speaking out against violence against women and human trafficking in a variety of creative ways.
