Community Speaking Engagements:
We have a lot to be grateful for this April!
Julie spoke on air with Rochester SCORE's weekly radio program, Re-thinking Business: Success Sauce & 2 Pickles. If you missed the broadcast, you can listen here! Thank you, Tara and Sid, for this fantastic opportunity!
MJSB set up a table and collaborated with Angels of Mercy at the Century Club's Monthly Cocktail and Networking to help raise awareness of human trafficking in Rochester. Thank you, Century Club!
Nazareth College invited MJSB to join a panel of experts at the event "Slaves in our Midst," co-sponsored by Feminists for Nonviolent Choices, raising awareness of human trafficking in Rochester and the resources available for victims/survivors. We had a great turnout. Thank you, Nazareth College Public Health Program and FFNVC, for organizing this informative event!
