The guest is St. Mary's Academy student Allison Nasson, who formed an anti-slavery committee at school that this summer evolved into the nonprofit Youth Ending Slavery or YES.
Nasson says, "Human trafficking is an issue that really affects young women not only internationally but also in our own country and city. It's much less removed from our lives than we'd like to think it is."
YES will hold its first Walk to End Slavery on Saturday, Oct. 6, at 2 p.m. at Director Park in downtown Portland (Southwest Park and Yamhill) to raise awareness about the issue of human trafficking and ways that people can make responsible choices as consumers to help put an end to involuntary servitude.
