Please join us March 9, at 2:00 p.m., Camano Island Library, for a distinctive program by Lynda Buehring and an agent and task force officer/detective from Homeland Security and the Seattle Police Department. Their topic is “Forging Community Relationships to Combat Human Trafficking,” bringing awareness to this huge and complex topic, from defining human trafficking indicators to demonstrating how local and global agencies intersect to combat these acts.
Lynda retired after 32 years with the federal government and ended her career as a Supervisory Special Agent with the Department of Homeland Security assigned to oversee the Human Trafficking Unit in Seattle. She also served on the first Washington State Human Trafficking Task Force organized to assist in writing legislation on human trafficking. In 2003, Washington became the first state to pass a law criminalizing human trafficking. Lynda is a member of the Stanwood/Camano Island AAUW.
