CELEBRATING 101 YEARS OF ROTARY IN FORT COLLINS
Sex Trafficking, A Survivor's Story
This Wednesday, Megan Lundstrom, Executive Director of Free Our Girls, will bring her personal account of the human trafficking crisis in America.  Stacy Plemmons will make the introduction.   A northern Colorado native, Megan Lundstrom was first groomed and recruited by a sex trafficker at the age of 23, as a young, newly-divorced single mother.  She had run out of options to support herself and her children after escaping an abusive marriage. Over the next 5 years, Megan would be trafficked across the United States before she found her freedom and began her journey to healing.
