On Jan. 24th, 22024 our End the Demand Committee hosted 57 people at our FREE training event targeting hotels, restaurants and other businesses affected by Trafficking activity.  Thanks to the generosity of local hotels who hosted this event.  This was our 12th training in the Community.  We partnered with the Portland Police Bureau led by Detective Tim Larsen, D.A. JR Ujifusa, retired PPB Officer Mike Gallagher, and a survivor from our own community.
