Sex traffic survivor to speak at SBCC

Author Carissa Phelps

Carissa Phelps was forced into prostitution when she was a teenager. With help, though, she went on to graduate from UCLA and become an attorney and advocate for sexually exploited runaway children and homeless youth. Her remarkable story is the subject of a new book called Runaway Girl: Escaping Life on the Streets, One Helping Hand at a Time.

Phelps will be at SBCC speaking about surviving sex trafficking on Tuesday, March 27. Join the Foster and Kinship Care Education Program for this special event at the Fe Bland Forum, 6-8:30 pm.
