Theresa Flores knows firsthand the dangers of human trafficking. A victim herself when she was a teen, she has since become a champion for young people and has seen a Michigan human trafficking law named after her.

Flores will be speaking in Southwest Michigan at three different events this upcoming Thursday. She will first be speaking at Michiana Christian Embassy in Niles at 12 p.m., then at Southwestern Michigan College in Dowagiac at 2:30 p.m., and finally at the First Church of God in St. Joseph at 6:30 p.m.
