Shoreline City Hall Council Chambers
17500 Midvale Ave N
Shoreline, WA 98133

Please join Shoreline's Police Department, city officials, district educators and fellow residents in attending a public forum, “Sex Trafficking in King County.”

Hundreds of women and girls are sold for sex every night in King County. Join us this coming Tuesday 7pm at Shoreline City Hall to learn what’s being done and how you can help. Parents and teens are especially encouraged to come out.

The forum will begin with the presentation “Sex Trafficking in King County” by REST (Real Escape from the Sex Trade; description below). Q & A will follow with REST and Shoreline Police Department’s Liaison & Special Teams Officers and the City Prosecutor’s Office. Other local officials, community leaders, and district educators will be at the forum as well.

REST is an independent, Seattle-based 501c3 that provides pathways to freedom, safety, and hope for victims of sex trafficking and people involved in the sex trade. REST actively partners with Seattle's Vice Squad, Seatac, Kent, and Burien police officers, Businesses Ending Sex Trafficking (BEST), Organization for Prostitution Survivors (OPS), Seattle's Union Gospel Mission, and others.

This event is co-sponsored by Laura Lind and Officer Steven Perry (of the Shoreline Police Department.) If you have any questions about the forum, please feel free to contact Laura Lind. Hope to see many of you at City Hall 7pm this Tuesday night!
