Professional Development NEW! Human Trafficking: Looking Beneath the Surface

Co-sponsored by KC-CASA, Kankakee Community College, and 21st Judicial Circuit Family Violence Coordinating Council Human Trafficking uses force, fraud, or coercion to exploit someone for sex or labor. It is a crime hidden beneath the surface. The first step to combating human trafficking is to identify victims so they can receive support and services. While awareness about the issue is growing, human trafficking is still a fairly new recognized crime here. Human Trafficking is a $150 billion dollar industry worldwide, according to the International Labor Organization. It is happening nearby, and survivors need a place for help and support. Take part in this day-long conference and learn to identify survivors, understand human trafficking laws and legal rights, enhance the investigation and prosecution process, find out about referral services, plus how to help shed light on this issue and positively impact the life of survivors.

NEW! Women in the Civil War

Our instructor

Tracy Kelch is a certified

Life Coach through International Coach Certification Alliance. She has worked with the public and customer service for many years. Kelch’s experiences meeting and listening to diverse groups of people was pivotal to her making a career change later in life. She decided to become a Self Confidence Life Coach to share her stories and be a “cheerleader” for others going through changes in their lives. She wants to help people be successful and achieve what they thought they never could.

The Civil War significantly affected the lives of American women. A handful disguised themselves as men and joined the fight. Others served as spies and nurses. Many more took on new roles at home after their husbands, brothers and fathers responded to the call to arms. Thousands of enslaved women began the transition to freedom, beginning new lives amidst the horrors of war. This class will look at how the war shaped, impacted, and transformed the lives of women by looking at it through the lens of the female abolitionist, soldier, slave, spy, nurse, southern planter's wife, prostitute, and southern yeoman's wife. Instructor: Christina Lea Smith. Class notes: Upon successful completion, 3 professional development hours awarded to teachers. Friday, April 6 9 a.m. - noon • KCC Room D123 LECT 8430.A16 • $19, includes handouts.
