Human trafficking exhibit comes to Bellingham Jan. 9-13

THE BELLINGHAM HERALDJanuary 6, 2014 

BELLINGHAM - People can learn about human trafficking during a free exhibit at Christ the King Community Church, 4173 Meridian St., from Jan. 9 through 13.

Called "Sold: the Human Trafficking Experience," the exhibit combines technology with stories of victims in nine different parts of the world, including the U.S.

Because of its mature content, the exhibit is appropriate for ages 13 and older.

Exhibit hours are 1 to 9 p.m. Thursday, Jan. 9; 7 a.m. to 9 p.m. Friday, Jan. 10; and 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. for the weekend and Monday.

As visitors travel through 12 rooms of the exhibit over the course of an hour, they will learn about the types of human trafficking by "becoming" a modern-day slave in a particular situation, organizers said, and encouraged to connect with the slaves they're learning about.

Reserve a spot by going online to ctkbellingham.com/SOLD, and clicking on "reserve your fast pass here."

More details are online at soldexp.com or on the exhibit's Facebook page.
