Prayer service for victims of human trafficking planned ahead of Derby

The public is invited to take part in a prayer service May 1 at 4:30 p.m. to call attention to victims of human trafficking and urge an end to the demand for trafficked humans.

The service — sponsored by the People Against Trafficking Humans (PATH) Coalition of Kentucky — will be held at Jefferson Square Park in downtown Louisville at Sixth and Jefferson streets.

“These crimes against humanity violate the human dignity of the individual and wound the social fabric of our culture. To oppose these crimes, it takes individuals at the local, state and federal level working together,” a news release from PATH said.

Carrie Bohnert, who works at the University of Louisville School of Medicine, will serve as the speaker and will address the recent federal legislation and its impact on survivors of human trafficking, the release said.
