April 11, 2019 - 5th Annual Community Roundtable Training on Domestic Minor Sex Trafficking

Featured speaker, Army veteran and former Special Victim’s Detective Kevin McNeil, joins Micah’s Promise this year as we share about the reality of Domestic Minor Sex Trafficking (DMST) and the roles of men.  Young boys, alongside the girls, fall victim to DMST through family members, coaches, and online gaming. Men are taking action by learning how to respond to abuse, bringing awareness to DMST, and advocating for demand reduction.

Micah’s Promise seeks to raise awareness about Domestic Minor Sex Trafficking (DMST) by providing prevention and awareness education and building a therapeutic treatment center for girls aged 12-17.  The Annual Community Roundtable on DMST is one of those public trainings. Each year professionals actively working to end DMST are brought together to share lessons, insights and trainings from their advocacy experience.  

2019’s keynote speaker will be Army veteran and Ret. Det. Kevin McNeil.  McNeil is an advocate and author that is uniquely positioned to address the commercial sex trafficking of minors from personal experience as a survivor of abuse, special victim’s detective and educator.  Other presenters will be announced closer to the event date. Past roundtables have included veteran law enforcement from Columbus Special Victims Unit, government sector Georgia Cares representatives, licensed child psychiatrist and child sex trafficking survivor advocate keynote.

Additional information will be made available on www.micahspromise.org as date approaches.
