Sex Trafficking:  A Problem of Pandemic Proportions

If you thought sex trafficking would diminish with pandemic shutdowns, think again.  With more folks stuck at home, online trafficking has skyrocketed and placed our youth at even greater risk than before.

Do you know the red flags that someone in your family or circle of young friends may be at risk? What sort of privacy safeguards need to be in place for photos they share on social media like Instagram and TikTok?  And do these safeguards always work?

 Amy Ryan Rued, a trained volunteer ambassador for Shared Hope International and regional coordinator for Ohio, will speak at our monthly Zoom meeting at 6 p.m. Monday, March 15.  Feel free to invite a guest who might benefit from the information she has to share.

March 20 will be the vernal equinox, the first day of spring.

Many cultures have festivals and rituals that take place at this time, such as Easter, Passover, Holi (Hindu), and Norwuz (Persian). While many people participate in traditions that have existed for hundreds or thousands of years, others focus more on appreciating the changes in nature that take place during spring. This might involve going for walks in the woods, watching flowers bloom in your area, or simply noticing new birds at a bird feeder.

Join us to see some examples of these festivities, and think about how you may want to celebrate this special season. The presentation will be led by Boston members Susan Hargrave and Elaine McGovern.

Curator of Political History at the National Museum of American History (Smithsonian Institution, Washington, DC), Jon Grinspan studies how politics and popular culture grew up together in America.

In the 1800s, American political campaigns blended government and entertainment, youth culture and saloon culture, crime and comedy and so much more. The result was a mixing of the personal and the political, creating a bold experiment in self-government and thrilling human stories. Grinspan will discuss his work as a historian of American democracy as well as his new book, The Age of Acrimony: How Americans Fought to Fix Their Democracy, 1865 – 1915, where he takes us from the chaos of post-Civil War America to the progressive era, showing parallels to today.
