“The reality is that Slavery has not ended. Human Trafficking occurs in almost every country and has been reported in every state in the United States, including Hot Springs, Arkansas.
Melisa Glenn serves with Project Hope as Chair of the Human Trafficking Task Force of Garland County and the Hot Springs Representative for Partners Against Trafficking Humans, PATH, which is based in Little Rock. Melisa will be sharing what Human Trafficking is and how to respond to it.”
Melisa is a resident of Hot Springs, Arkansas. She is a graduate of the University of Arkansas at Little Rock and holds a Bachelor of Arts in History and Secondary Education. After learning about the atrocities of Human Trafficking and realizing the lack of education on what human trafficking is and the impact it has on the community, she began attending conferences and training to become an educator. Her focus is to provide awareness and knowledge for others like herself so that they can become a voice for the voiceless. The mission at the Human Trafficking Task Force of Garland County is “Educating and equipping individuals and communities to strengthen local efforts.”

10:30am Speaker Rev Bud Hearn-The name of the presentation is, “The Paradox of Liberal Religion.” When a religion describes itself as liberal typically means that it is tolerant, inclusive, progressive, supports intellectual honesty, opposes dogmatic rigidity, favors a humanistic approach to ethics. By definition then liberal religion includes being tolerant. A paradox ? Historically liberal religionists have resisted any reform requiring them to give up their privileged way of life. A paradox ? A liberal religious community tends to want people just “like us”. A paradox ? In Sunday’s service Rev Bud Hearn explores the dynamic of liberal religion.

When my plane touched down in the United States on Wednesday night, it was a different country from the one I left.
